The exact cause of death is yet to be established.

The 40,000-runner marathon took place under the warmest conditions in the race's history, about 75 degrees Fahrenheit, according to the BBC.

Matt Campbell, a professional chef who featured in the BBC series "MasterChef: The Professionals" in December 2017 - reaching the final of the programme - collapsed after 22.5 miles of the race.

Campbell wrote on the MasterChef Facebook page on Saturday: "Myself and Tom Peters after meeting in the final 12 of MasterChef have chose to run London Marathon together, I'm running for @brathayevents and Tom is running for @asthmauk". It was a privilege to have him on the show.

"Our thoughts go to his family and friends at this sad time", race director Hugh Brasher said here today. Campbell in his regalia as a chef.

In a statement The Brathay Trust, said: "We are devastated by the news of the death of Matt Campbell, who was participating in the 2018 Virgin Money London Marathon yesterday whilst raising funds for Brathay Trust".

Speaking about running the marathon in honour of his late father Martin, he wrote on Instagram in February: "Words can't describe how honoured and humbled I feel to be asked to run this year's @londonmarathon on behalf of @brathaychallenges/@brathaytrust and in memory of my Father, Martin Campbell".

Campbell's family paid tribute to an "inspirational son and brother", who was an avid marathon runner. "I know you can do it!" and entered me into my first marathon; Brathay 2016 along with my brother, Josh.

Campbell took part in MasterChef: The Professionals previous year, before reaching the semi-finals. Campbell also had run a marathon in Manchester two weeks ago.

"Matt became involved with Brathay Trust through his father Martin, who was a key member of the team delivering the Brathay 10in10 (10 marathons in 10 days) until his untimely death in the summer of 2016".

Everyone involved in the organisation of the London Marathon would like to express our honest condolences to Matt's family and friends.
