Did he or Didn't he act on team orders?

This got Harry Wiltshire disqualified from the European Championships on the weekend. The bigger question is whether or not it was under team orders? The Brownlee's don't need to put someone up to these tricks as they have been on a winning streak this year, so why would they get a teammate to do this.

I know from experience that the swim in Triathlon is crazy and sometimes you get bumped, kicked and grabbed but never have I seen someone deliberately impede another competitor. As you can see from the video  he is aware of who is next to him as Wiltshire looks at Gomez a couple of times during the swim and then again when they are trying to climb out of the water.
