Several hundred metres - and over two minutes later - Hawkins collapsed on a bridge just past the 40km mark.

The Australian gold medallist, who is based in the Gold Coast, said he did not believe any athlete could prepares for the conditions on Sunday and he too was struggling with the heat. Fortunately, the runner was yesterday recovering in hospital, denied a medal, but soon to be back on his feet.

Update: 4:14PM SCOTLAND'S Callum Hawkins collapsed during this morning's marathon and is receiving medical treatment at Gold Coast University Hospital. We are pleased to report he is sitting up and speaking with his dad and Team Scotland medical staff. "He is current course of extra assessments as a precaution and all of us need him a speedy restoration".

Sport commentator Steve Cram said it was disgraceful that paramedics took so long to attend to Hawkins.

"I've spent the last four weeks with Callum and he's been great for me, giving me confidence and showing me how the best guys prepare so I learned a lot".

Medical staff were posted at 500 meter intervals in the final kilometers of the course and all had radio communications, according to Games organizers GOLDOC.

"Sometimes the medical people arrive and the athlete has to make a decision as to whether they go on or not and I understand that was a part of the discussion".

Mark Peters, GOLDOC chief executive, said: "I like many others was distressed to see a wonderful athlete like Callum collapse during the closing stages of today's marathon".

Here's the Team Scotland statement regaring Callum Hawkins. "The response of medical staff this morning was inside agreed response suggestions and timeframes", talked about the assertion.

"I just tried running my own race", said the 34-year-old, who also claimed Commonwealth marathon silver in 2010. He added: "This is not in keeping with the spirit of GC2018".

Hawkins was not the only athlete to suffer in brutal conditions.

Hawkins did not finish the race.

Shelley finished in 2 hours, 16 minutes and 46 seconds.

"I just tried to run a smart race and come through and in the end I managed to do it, but it was really tough".

"I wasn't sure what was going on, I had a couple of mates around Main Beach who said Callum was in a bit of trouble", Shelley said. "They knowledgeable me to take care of going and gave me encouragement".

Hawkins' team-mate Robbie Simpson had been working his way through the field and he punched the air as he crossed the finish line, his time of 2:19:36 securing the bronze ahead of Northern Ireland's Kevin Seaward with a time of 2:19:54.

Hawkins had moved away from the pack and opened up a gap from Uganda's Munyo Solomon Mutai, who was initially behind him in second.

There was an anxious wait before any assistance reached the stricken Hawkins, by which time Australia's Michael Shelley was passing the scene on his way to winning gold.
