A 31-year-old sailor has successfully passed out as a Royal Navy physical trainer.

Leading Physical Trainer Ian Cole passed the notoriously difficult 12-week course at HMS Temeraire in Portsmouth and will now be able to advise, support and provide opportunities for sports and recreation at the engineering school HMS Sultan in Gosport.

A keen sportsman, Ian joined the navy in 2004 and cites his favourite deployment so far as serving on board Type 23 frigate HMS Portland in the Caribbean.
