A curious whale visits this swimmer circumnavigating Britain

Ross Edgley is swimming all the way around Britain, which is being followed both above and below the ocean's surface. A large minke whale visited him the other day.

Sounds like he's getting a world-class case of bursitis, common among hardcore swimmers:

After more than thousand kilometres of swimming Ross' shoulders are starting to make some weird noises. He and the team are worried that without treatment it might impact his chances of finishing the Great British Swim. So, they've called on the help of top sports physio Jeff Ross to see if he can work is magic and get Ross swimming at his best again.
