BRIAN the Robot races Adam Gemili in 100m race

Olympic sprinter Adam Gemili is used to competing with the fastest runners in the world, but how did he fare when faced with a robot?

After accepting a challenge to 'compare speeds' on Twitter by our very own BRIAN the Robot, Gemili invited BRIAN to Lee Valley Athletic Centre for a showdown.

Watch the short video to find out who won the race. Man or machine.


While BRIAN is already an expert at all things insurance, the rest of the world is still to be discovered by our inquisitive little robot.

If you want to find out more about BRIAN and follow him on his journey, why not visit the little corner of the internet he calls home?
