Great Britain's Jonathan Brownlee has said that he is delighted to have won an Olympic bronze medal in the triathlon.

Brownlee, 22, took third behind older brother Alastair and Spain's Javier Gomez, who took gold and silver respectively.

Jonny had to serve a 15-second penalty midway through the final, running stage of the race but still managed to clinch third.

He tweeted: "Wow! What a triathlon today. Great support and great race. I am so happy with my olympic bronze medal!! #teamgb"

The Yorkshire triathlete delayed the medal ceremony as he had to be medically checked after the race. He was given the all-clear and received his bronze medal on the podium.
