Not content with being a top runner, cyclist and swimmer, Olympic triathlete Jonny Brownlee now wants to fly!

The 22-year-old, who won a bronze medal at London 2012, made the admission after a pupil at Bradford Grammar School asked him what superpower he would like to have.

Jonny, a former student, paid a visit to chat to students about his success.

The Bingley Harriers member, whose elder brother Alistair was training in Spain, said he had fond memories of the school.

He said: “I really enjoyed myself here – I learned to enjoy sport here. It is genuinely good to come back.”
