A north-east former special forces soldier arrived in London after crossing the finish line in an epic world record-breaking adventure – just in time for the royal wedding.
Dean Stott, of Peterculter, cycled 13,670 miles from the southern tip of South America to the most northerly part of North America in just 99 days, achieving two world records in the process.
Mr Stott became friends with Prince Harry when they were linked up as Armed Forces training partners. And the 41-year-old said he was looking forward to his pal’s wedding.
He said: “Harry is aware of what I’ve achieved by crossing the finish line in record time, so I won’t be bending his ear too much about it on his big day.
“It’s very much his and Meghan’s day to enjoy so the focus should be on them. I’m looking forward to being there.”
