British explorer Lewis Gordon Pugh braved sub-zero temperatures to become the first person to swim at the North Pole.

It took him 18 minutes and 50 seconds to swim one kilometre in waters created by melted sea ice at temperatures of minus 1.8 degrees celsius, believed to be the coldest a human has swum in.
