Jonny Brownlee's bid to win the World Triathlon Series ended in drama at the final race.

He was leading with 700m left on the run but started to struggle, weaving around the road as his legs seized up.

Older brother Alistair caught up, carried and helped him finish second in Mexico. Jonny then collapsed and was taken away for medical attention while a protest was lodged.

He is being treated in hospital as a precaution and has taken to social media from his bed.

Leeds United secured a second successive league win to ease the pressure on manager Garry Monk and keep Cardiff in the bottom three of the Championship.

Chris Wood's fourth goal in six games, a 62nd-minute penalty rolled home in confident fashion, and Pablo Hernandez's first Leeds goal eight minutes from time secured a well-merited 2-0 success.

The three points moves Leeds towards the heady heights of mid-table after a fraught start to the season, Monk now having won four of his past six games in all competitions.

Cardiff's campaign, however, is showing little sign of flickering into life with only one victory so far this season.

That does not seem the case as manager Paul Heckingbottom has left the door open for the midfielder to return in January.

The desire to play football seems to have impressed Heckingbottom rather than sulking on the sidelines.

Heckingbottom has challenged the 23 year old to rack up goals and assists so upon his return he will act as a new signing.

Moncur left the club for Peterborough United just two months after signing from Colchester this summer.
