Fresh from his Paralympic gold medal success in London, former F1 driver Alex Zanardi, who lost his legs in an IndyCar accident in 2001, showed once again how indomitable his sporting spirit is by helping a fellow competitor to complete the Venice Marathon at the weekend.

His friend Eric Fontanari, who is also a wheelchair competitor, had wanted to take part in the Venice event, but wasn't sure to be able to complete the full 26 mile course.

So, as you can see from this video, Zanardi set aside a chance of a medal and focussed his efforts on helping his friend, pushing him for some of the way to the finish.

A remarkable man.
