w123 240D

I have a w123 240D. It initially struggled to start. After 300kms on the road and with no overheating it suddenly came to a standstill and did not want to start. Took the glow plugs out and discovered water on them. When turning the engine, the water runs into the head onto the glow plugs. Does not mix with the oil though? Any idea what the problem could be?

Water in the cylinders - bad head gasket.
