The father of Madeleine McCann will take part in a triathlon this weekend in aid of a charity which supports family and friends of missing people.
Gerry McCann, whose three-year-old daughter Madeleine went missing six years ago in Portugal, will take part in the Virgin Active London Olympic Distance Triathlon on Sunday to raise funds for the charity Missing People.
The triathlon will see him complete a 1.5k swim, 40km cycle and finish with a 10km run.
It comes after his wife Kate raised almost £22,000 when she completed the London Marathon in April in aid of the charity.
Madeleine went missing from the family's holiday apartment in Praia da Luz in Portugal's Algarve on May 3 2007, shortly before her fourth birthday.
