Kenton Cool reaches record-breaking 16th Everest summit.

British mountaineer Kenton Cool has successfully completed his record-breaking 16th summit of Mount Everest.

The climber became the first non-Nepali person to complete the 8,849m (29,032ft) peak 16 times.

In his previous 15 trips up Everest, he has been a guide to other well-known mountaineers, including Sir Ranulph Fiennes and broadcaster Ben Fogle.

Mr Fogle said for the 48-year-old "to climb Everest once was a trial - to climb it 16 times is heroic."

Kami Rita Sherpa and Lhakpa Sherpa are credited as the people who have climbed the mountain the most times.
