    Britain's Alex Yee finished second in his first World Triathlon Series event, behind world champion Mario Mola at the Abu Dhabi season opener.

    Yee, 21, earned his first ITU Triathlon World Cup win in Cape Town in February, and is the British 10,000m champion.

    He and Mola pulled away early on in the 5km run in Abu Dhabi, but the 29-year-old Spaniard kicked clear with about 600 metres to go.

    In the women's race, Briton Jess Learmonth was third, beating American Taylor Knibb in a sprint finish.

    Katie Zaferes claimed her second World Series win, 26 seconds ahead of fellow American Taylor Spivey.

    Britain ended with four competitors in the top 10, with Non Stanford fifth, world champion Vicky Holland eighth and Georgia Taylor-Brown ninth.

  4. Get Inspired: How to get into triathlon

    Like running, swimming or cycling? Fancy doing all three, one after the other? If you answered yes to the previous two questions then triathlon is the sport for you!

    The Olympic distances are a 1.5km swim, followed by a 40km cycle, rounded off with a 10km run. But don't feel daunted, it really is for everybody, as 63-year-old Grandma Sue Faulkner proved in 2015!

    The sport has a range of distances and formats to cut your teeth on, and as long as your daily exercise includes all three disciplines, you can call yourself a triathlete with pride. Find out all you need to know here, or get involved by finding your local club British Triathlon's club finder.
