Congratulations are due to tv funnyman David Walliams on the completion of his swim from Bognor Regis (UK) to Bondi Beach (Australia).
The swim, which took 60 weeks non-stop, is the greatest feat of human endurance in history.
Walliams set off from Butlins Holiday Park, Bognor Regis, in January 2007. He was accompanied on his journey by Round-The-World Yachtswoman Dame Ellen MacArthur who sailed alongside the courageous comedian, occasionally throwing bottles of water and healthy freshly caught sild into his path.
Walliams, who has now raised £30 billion for Sport Relief, was in good spirits as he crawled onto Bondi's famous golden sands.
When asked what he missed most during his time in the ocean, he winked and said "a nice cup of tea".
He was immediately mobbed by several be-thonged young ladies.
