Tel Aviv marathon in Israel got off to a burning start with a heat wave causing dozens of people to collapse and the death of one runner. Ambulance services treated more than 60 runners suffering from heat stroke, dehydration and minor injuries. The heat wave has also caused a huge number of beach goers to join crowds at local beaches to cool off in the unseasonable weather. 35,000 runners took part in the half marathon, with 150,000 spectators lining the streets to cheer.
