Henry Worsley.. Who you say?, he was crossing the Antarctic, trying to be the first to complete a solo, unsupported crossing He died just 30 mils short of his target, and sent a last message to his family from the ice, saying he just couldn't go on, he was exhausted, couldn't put one ski in front of the other.

I was just thinking about him a few days ago. Very sad. I loved listening to Sir Terry on Radio 2 and his acerbic comments on the Eurovision Song Contest.
