A British mountaineer has taken a gold medal from the 1924 Winter Olympics to the summit of Mount Everest.

The medal was awarded to a group that came within 500 metres of the top of Everest in 1922.

Kenton Cool, who reached the summit early on Friday morning, has now climbed the mountain ten times.

The BBC's Jeremy Cooke reports.
