LIVE: Cuba-US swimmer reaches Florida

2 September 2013 Last updated at 18:45 BST

US endurance swimmer Diana Nyad is arriving in Florida, on her fifth attempt to become the first person to swim from Cuba without a shark cage.

She had to call off her non-stop swim a year ago after it was hampered by bad weather and jellyfish stings.

She said that this would be her final attempt to cross the 103-mile (166-km) wide Florida Straits.
