Eindhoven: Ethiopian Tilahun Regassa won Sunday`s Eindhoven Marathon in 2 hr 06 min 20 sec ahead of Kenyans Jonathan Maiyo (2:06:47) and Alfers Lagat (2:07:11).

An exhausted Regassa was left disappointed with what he dubbed a "poor performance", his winning time almost one minute slower than his personal best set in Chicago in 2012.

The Ethiopian, who said he was suffering cramp and knee problems, was helped away in a wheelchair after finishing.
