Great Britain’s Alex Yee has won silver in the men’s triathlon at the Tokyo Olympics, with Norway’s Kristian Blummenfelt taking gold.
The 23-year-old from Brockley, southeast London, making his Olympic debut, led for much of the 10km (6.2 miles) run before the Norwegian produced a stunning breakaway in the Tokyo heat.
New Zealand’s Hayden Wilde took silver with Brit Jonny Brownlee, who was bidding for a medal at a third successive Olympics having won bronze in London and silver in Rio, finishing fifth.
The event got off to a bizarre beginning when half of the athletes were blocked from diving into the water by a boat, leading to a false start.
Yee stayed in contention, leading the chase group across the line in the cycling before taking the lead in the run.
