Poor Big Ben, time was not on his side!
Lukas Bates was attempting to break the world record for a runner dressed as a landmark building — in this case, the tower that houses Big Ben.
He ran the entire London Marathon only to have this happen at the finish line ...
The 30-year-old's quest for the record was also stymied.
He finished in 3 hours, 54 minutes, 21 seconds, almost 20 minutes slower than the record set by Richard Mietz, who ran the 2018 Berlin Marathon dressed as the Holstentor.
