Athlete dies after running marathon in Hong Kong 
A marathon runner collapsed and died whilst running the Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon, which drew a record 40,000 participants, was held when the air pollution index (API) was nearly 150, the highest level since September 2005. The condition of a 33-year-old man who also collapsed during Sunday's race had improved from critical to serious. The reasons the two runners collapsed were not given for privacy reasons.
