The Brownlee brothers, Alistair and Jonny have been dominating Triathlon races around the world, that you’d think everyone would know how to tell them apart. Especially when you’re the governing body of Triathlon.

The International Triathlon Union, ITU sent Jonny Brownlee a congratulatory letter on winning the World Series event in his home city of Leeds, although brother Alistair had crossed the line in first place.

Jonny posted the  letter on Twitter with the message “#awkward”. Thanks for the laugh, ITU! Now we know you have a humourous side.
