McLaren has denied reports that Jenson Button had suffered a leg injury competing in a triathlon over the weekend.

Button was competing in the Challenge Fuerte in the Canary Islands but failed to finish the event after dropping out during the half-marathon distance run. There were reports that Button had withdrawn due to a leg injury which could put his participation in the Spanish Grand Prix in doubt, but McLaren has issued a statement denying any injury.

“Jenson decided not to complete the Canary Islands triathlon, but he is fit and well and has, contrary to a few rogue media reports, no injuries of any kind,” the statement read.

“Indeed, he is driving in our simulator today and is looking forward to participating in the forthcoming Spanish Grand Prix.”

Button himself tweeted about the event on Tuesday morning but made no reference to any injury.

Sunny, same for me, Chrome is better but second page of comments sporadic. Richard, the drpped (see!) letters continue on IE, plus new virus. Crash, Sunny's is correct. All those ads you provide via cookies are going to drop you if you don't care about your product. I'm sure it's been said before, is this what you had in mind when you chose your name?
