On the final lap of the bike stage of the race, the Manchester athlete suffered a flat tyre.

The incident cost her around 22 SECONDS during the transition from bike to run.

But a brilliant effort so far in the final stage has put her in with a brilliant chance of a medal.

Speaking on BBC’s coverage, former triathlete Annie Emerson said: “I think Georgia Taylor-Brown has got a flat back tyre – she is struggling in the turns – might just have cost her gold medal chances.”
