Gold for older Brownlee in triathlon
Alistair Brownlee took gold in the triathlon at the Olympics while his younger brother Jonny had to settle for bronze in London.
Alistair came home in a time of 1:46:25 - 11 seconds ahead of silver medallist Javier Gomez of Spain although he did ease off at the end and walked across the line cheered on by the partisan crowd in Hyde Park.
Jonny secured third place despite a 15-second penalty for mounting his bike too early in transition one but still had enough of a lead to take third place.
However, his effort came at a cost as he needed medical attention post-race, which delayed the medal ceremony.
Alistair told the BBC: "I think it was deceptively hard today, obviously it was fast but with this hot, humid, muggy kind of day, it dehydrates you and overheats you and I think he was probably just right on the edge at the finish like you are normally and that probably tipped him just towards the edge at the end.
"That race was just unbelievable, I felt in control right from the start and the crowds, I don't think I've ever come across anything anywhere near like that and I don't think I will ever again.
"I think my ears are still ringing from all that noise and it was absolutely amazing."
The Brownlee brothers were both in the top five after the 1,500m swim while Stuart Hayes played his part in setting the pace for them during the bike section.
