TV star: My dark cloud
TV presenter Ben Fogle has spoken of the “dark cloud” that was hanging over him after he climbed Mount Everest.
Fogle and former Olympic cycling champion Victoria Pendleton, along with mountaineer Kenton Cool, took on Everest earlier this year to highlight the environmental challenges facing mountains. Pendleton had to withdraw from the ascent of the 29,029 ft mountain on the Nepal-tibet border after suffering from oxygen deprivation.
Fogle, 44, said that after returning home in May he lost all his motivation and felt immensely guilty that Pendleton had developed depression after pulling out of the gruelling Himalayan climb.
