Walliams battling on the Thames despite of diarhhea


News here and here on the Sun, about Little Britain star David Walliams swimming from the source of The Thames to Big Ben in London. About 140 miles of Britain’s longest river over the course of eight days, navigating busy river traffic, a cocktail of bacteria in the water, and avoiding the 39 million cubic meters of raw sewage that fill the Thames each year. So his navigation is a bit off, luckily not hitting traffic, but now suffering from severe vomiting and diarrhea, on the third day of the swim.
