'Sumo wrestlers' in 5km fun run

Dozens of fun runners have donned giant sumo wrestler suits to take part in a race around a park.

After a "mass inflation" which saw the eye-catching outfits be blown up, the runners jogged, walked or wobbled the 5km course in Battersea Park, south London.

Many accessorised their suits with masks - including some of members of the Royal Family.

The event previously set a Guinness World Record for the largest gathering of people running in sumo suits.

The race is raising money for the charity Link Community Development, which works with governments and communities to improve the quality of education for children in sub-Saharan Africa.
