Runaway championship leader Jenson Button, a lover of the athletic discipline, will take part in the London Triathon in August.

The 29-year-old Briton announced he is participating both for his F1 fitness programme and to raise money for charity.

The event covers a 1500m swim, 40km bike ride and a 10km run. "I'm aiming to finish in the top 10 per cent, so no pressure," said the Brawn driver.
