'I don't think anybody should feel disappointed or ashamed. At least he tried,' one of Gordon Ramsay's groupmates says.

Celebrity chef failed to complete the London Marathon on Sunday, April 25 after suffering a cramp in his leg. The kitchen guru was part of Virgin entrepreneur Richard Branson's all-star team aiming to complete the 26.2-mile run across the U.K. capital.

But Ramsay didn't reach the finish line with his groupmates - he pulled out of the race part-way through due to injury. Branson says, "Even the best marathon runners drop out. You can get cramp so easily. I don't think anybody should feel disappointed or ashamed. At least he tried."

Runners in Branson's team who completed the grueling race included Australian singer and British royal Princess Beatrice.
