Formula 1 champion Jenson Button completed his second London Triathlon for the Make-A-Wish Foundation on Sunday.

Despite suffering tonsillitis, the racer finished fourth out of 570 competitors in his group and raised more than £18,000 through his JustGiving page. The race comprised a 1500m swim, 40km bike ride and a 10km run.

“Great day at the London Triathlon,” he wrote on Twitter. “Suffered quite a bit on the run due to just being physically drained I guess from the antibiotics. Still reasonably happy with the result though.”

British TV personality Vernon Kay also competed, finishing the race for the Great Ormond Street Hospital.
