Yorkshire's Jonny Brownlee has missed out on the World Triathlon Series title after a dramatic finish.

With 700 metres to run in Mexico, he was leading, but started to struggle badly.

Brother Alistair caught up and put his arm around Jonny to help him cross the line in second, but that wasn't enough to prevent Spain's Mario Mola taking the overall title.

Jonny went to hospital afterwards, but seems in good spirits.

Tweeting from his hospital bed, he said: "Not how I wanted to end the season, but gave it everything."

Meanwhile, Alistair reportedly joked that his brother was a "flipping idiot" for not pacing his run properly.

 

Jonny has since posted a video saying that kind of behaviour is usually down to drinking too much, but this time it was because of not drinking enough.
