WTS final in Cozumel: who will win men’s world title?

Alistair said: ““I have been in that position before, when it happened to me in London a few years ago, I remember being in second place and then coming around and someone telling me I was in tenth.

“I couldn’t remember all of those people passing me. So I swore that, literally if it happened to anyone I would help them across the line. It is an awful position to be in, if he clunks out 1k from the finish line there is no medical support, it is a dangerous position to be in. Obviously the World Series is a big race, but I just had to do what was right in that situation.”

And in typical Yorkshire, understated fashion Alistair, once he delivered Jonny safely to the line, called him an ‘idiot’ for not pacing properly.

“I wish the flippin’ idiot had paced it!”

Brotherly love right there, Alistair Brownlee! https://t.co/DRirXNxbG9 pic.twitter.com/k0IiAPTamh

Looking strong: The Brownlees out on the run leg with the South African Henri Schoeman, who would go on to win the race.
