South African swimming duo Thane Williams and Jonno Proudfoot have completed a 459km swim in 24 days, their spokespeople said on Friday.

The two swam from Mozambique to Madagascar.

“This is an incredible feat and by no means ordinary,” they said in a statement.

In one day Williams and Proudfoot swam the same distance as the English Channel.

“[They swam] battling jelly fish stings, swimming with sharks and whales, and being detained by French military on a French island after some confusion.”
