ENJOYING a relaxing swim is quite often one of the main things on a cruise-goer’s list when embarking on a their ideal holiday - but British strongman Ross Edgeley has taken the idea of getting wet for fun to a whole new level.
The intrepid adventurer recently became the first swimmer to circumnavigate the whole of Great Britain, spending a whopping 157 days in the water to secure the title.
Edgeley suffered 37 jellyfish stings, a rotting tongue, suspected torn shoulder and an open neck wound during his epic attempt, before emerging from the water to a crowd of 300 who helped him limp across the finish line.
“It was strange... I was just really worried I was gonna stack it and face plant the floor,” he was said to comment.
In the words of one wise fish, just keep swimming.
