Gloucestershire based adventurer, Kenton Cool, joined me on the show this morning...he has now climbed Everest ten times.

He completed his climb last month taking with him a special Olympic gold medal which was given in 1924 to the members of a British team who made an unsuccessful attempt to climb the mountain.

So what did we learn today...when he got home from his last adventure his wife and daughter were away on holiday and his next challenge involves a cycling mission in The Alps with former motor racing champion Alain Prost.

    Well done Kenton. We shared the excitement with you - when you telephoned Radio Glos from the top of Everest !!! As you do. Glad your eye is better. Temperature and atmospheric pressure effects, no doubt. Love Quenington - particularly the church's Norman doorways. Future challenge - assault on the mighty May Hill.
