Italy's Pietri Dorando staggers across the line to win the marathon. Unfortunately for him, he was disqualified for receiving external support over the final few hundred yards of the course, but was awarded a special gold trophy by Queen Alexandra in recognition of his bravery. The official on the right is alleged to be Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (author of the Sherlock Holmes stories)
