The 29-year-old won in 54 minutes 52 seconds - five seconds ahead of second-placed Spaniard Mario Mola.

"I'd be lying to say that it doesn't hurt when people say, 'He's past it'," said Brownlee.

"It's been tough, but I finally won something. I was just having bad luck after bad luck."

The Briton - who was series champion in 2012 - produced a strong swim to finish within the top five, was in the leading pack on his bike, and then held off Mola's challenge in the 5km run.
