Starter Motor Issues

Its getting worse, after using vehicle for 30 minutes or more and turn off engine i am unable to re-start and the starter is so hot i can barely touch it...

I feel its failing, but never known one get this hot before.

If it cools down it starts first & every time but when hot you got no chance.

Anyone else had this?

Hotter than anything else around it?  If yes, sounds like it's staying open-circuit somewhere but with resistance therefore acting like a heater!  Check voltage across battery with feeds to the starter connected/disconnected?

Popped bonnet to be greated with flames...

Doused with flask of coffee.

Awaiting recovery.
