The McFly drummer, who also won Strictly Come Dancing in 2010, was greeted by his daughter, Lola, on his finish line.

Posting on his Instagram, Judd said: "I was watching the Team GB triathlon mixed relay on Olympic breakfast this morning, and they were talking about Jonny Brownlee being in a pain cave! So it inspired me to go and find my own pain cave!

"Parkrun is back, so I went and got stuck in.

"Lola was at the finish line and ran the last 50 metres with me. Sweet...but it did compromise my time.

"I LOVE @parkrunuk. Everyone out there challenging themselves on a Saturday morning. And I LOVE our Olympians! So inspiring!"
