The reason Eliud Kipchoge is so upset at the end of the race is because that 7 seconds from the WR was worth $125,000. He did get 55K for the win, 100K bonus for sub-2:05, and 25K bonus for a new London marathon course record. Still nothing to get that upset about.
Jos Hermens should be happy his male runners were #1 and #3, while Frederico Rosa had the #1 female and #2 male runners.

Kenenisa Bekele says he missed his drink five times during the race. "This is a fast race and you need energy! I'm not happy about it."
