He collapsed just before the track returned to Manhattan and was quickly treated by medical professionals. A few miles earlier, he took a 20-second bathroom break and stopped walking before collapsing.

Race officials later said he was fine. The race took place in unusually warm temperatures. Temperatures were in the 70s.

Evans Chebet from Kenya won the men’s round. He finished in 2 hours, 8 minutes and 41 seconds. He finished just 13 seconds ahead of runner-up Shura Kitata of Ethiopia.

Chebet said he saw Do Nascimento fall, but continued to race on. He said he was “sorry but had to continue the race”.

“He knew it was hot and humid and that (Do Nascimento) was going at a high pace,” Chebet told reporters through a translator. “He has a lot of experience and he knew he was going to be outmatched.”

Chebet won Boston Marathon earlier in the year.
