Kenton successfully reached the top of the world’s highest peak with fellow adventurers Robert Lucas, Mexican David Liano and three Nepalese guides.

Mr Cool said the latest ascent – which he completed on 12 May – was the best of all his climbs.

“Every time you go to Everest, it’s slightly different,” he said. “This time the ascent was amazing, with a cloudless sky. You couldn’t ask for better conditions.”
