"A 22-year-old runner who was taken ill after completing the London Marathon has died, race organisers said today.
The young man, who has not been named, collapsed after successfully finishing the 26-mile course around the capital.
The marathon's organisers said the runner died peacefully this morning, and offered their "deepest sympathy and condolences" to his family and friends.
A spokeswoman for the organisers said a second runner, who had been in a critical condition in hospital last night, was better today and had been transferred to a normal ward.
Sweltering heat left scores of contestants needing medical treatment.
Temperatures hit just below 21C at midday, almost equalling the 1996 record, and rose slightly higher later in the day.
Runners reported "nightmare" conditions as ambulance staff said they dealt with a higher than usual number of patients.
London Ambulance Service said this year's event, which attracted a record 36,391 runners, was "busier" than usual, with participants and spectators affected by the heat.
A spokeswoman said some people were suffering heat-related problems such as dehydration as well as sprains and other injuries.
A London Marathon spokeswoman said 57 people were taken to hospital.
St John Ambulance said it treated 5,032 people.
Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, who was running his eighth marathon, said the conditions were "extraordinary".
He said: "It was like running in a desert today. I stopped to help one guy. It was quite bad. They were dropping like flies."
Another runner, Michelle Dewberry, who won the BBC television show The Apprentice, said she saw someone being resuscitated after about four miles.
She said: "I have seen lots of people passed out and being resuscitated. It is scary, scary stuff."
Champion athlete Liz McColgan, who won the marathon in 1996, said some runners were in trouble.
She said: "I saw a lot of people walking with cramps and things. I think a lot were suffering."
England rugby World Cup team member Matt Dawson said he saw other runners pass out in front him.
He said: "You could see people just burning up in front of you, as I was.' "
Eek, I say.
