Quadruple amputee Jamie Andrew finished his Ironman-length triathlon earlier today. The Edinburgh climber swam two miles in Loch Tay, cycled 112 miles and rounded off with 26-mile run alongside the Union Canal to his home city.

Jamie, 37, lost his hands and feet after an accident climbing in the Alps. Since then he has raised thousands of pounds for charity. His prosthetic limbs are made from the high-tech metal, hence the nickname.

He hopes to raise £50,000 for the 500 Miles charity with this latest venture, which is run with fellow amputee Olivia Giles.

His challenge began at 6am on Saturday and was completed this morning. The 500 Miles charity helps provide prosthetic limbs in developing countries and war-torn parts of the world.
