    A bit more on the triathlon and Johnny Brownlee's post race collapse - from the BBC Day 11 coverage.

    The triathlon medal ceremony is delayed as Johnny Brownlee is seen being taken away by medics in a wheelchair, showing just how much the triathlon takes it's toll on athletes physically.


    "He didn't look to be in great difficulty. It may have had something to do with the fact that he stopped and served that penalty, so that made have played a part. These guys are red lining it for two hours, so I am not surprised some need medical attention afterwards," says British triathlete Chrissie Wellington.

    Triathlon gold medallist Alistair Brownlee: "It feels a bit underwhelming because Johnny has collapsed, but, no, it is fantastic. The race was unbelievable and the crowds were amazing. My ears are still ringing from all that noise.

    "I am massively proud. The pressure was stacked up and so many things put to bed today.
    Four-time Olympic champion Matthew Pinsent on Twitter: "Jonny's in bits. Might delay ceremony. Ice and medic being applied."

    It is a bit stupid, you'd think they could make them run a penalty loop or something like they do in other sports

    Or take the time off the end time or something.
