Incredible moment: Exhausted triathlete being helped by his brother.

By  | 

Jonathan Brownlee was close to becoming a world triathlon champion. But before he could reach the finish line, it was clear that he was completely exhausted.

He stopped and could barely stand on his own.

His brother, Alistair Brownlee, who is a two-time Olympic champion, caught up to him just seconds later.

He put his arm around his brother and started carrying him along, allowing South African triathlete Henri Schoeman to run past them.

As the Brownlee brothers were about to finish the race together, Alistair pushed Jonathan across the finish line to let him win the silver medal. Doing also prevented them from getting disqualified.
