Ill Norden wins World Triathlon title

Sweden's Lisa Norden wins the overall women's World Triathlon title in Auckland, New Zealand, despite being taken to hospital earlier with food poisoning.

Erin Densham of Australia led the overall series going into the race, but pulled out on the bike after losing the leading pack.

Germany's Anne Haug won the final leg of the eight-race series, but fourth place was enough for Olympic silver medallist Norden to take the trophy.

Sunday sees Jonny Brownlee attempt to succeed brother Alistair as men's world champion.
