Motivational speaker Sir Ranulph Twisleton-Wykeham-Fiennes, the 3rd Baronet of Banbury – to use his full name – is arguably the world’s greatest ever explorer and adventurer. He is also a former member of the Special Air Service (SAS) and in the mid-1960s he was the youngest ever captain in the British Army.
The holder of various world records and awards, Fiennes was the first explorer to reach both the north and south poles, the first to cross both the Antarctic and Arctic oceans, and the first to go around the world’s polar axis.
The motivational speaker also completed the first unsupported crossing of the Antarctic continent (the longest ever polar journey of its kind), led the team that discovered the lost city of Ubar near Yemeni, and led the first hovercraft expedition up the Nile. Despite having heart problems and being afraid of heights, Sir Ranulph climbed Mount Everest on more than one occasion.
At one stage, Fiennes suffered a huge heart attack which put him in a coma for three days and led to him having a double bypass operation. However, just a few months later he completed the infamous 7x7x7, which involves running seven marathons in all seven continents over seven days. He is also well-known for cutting off the tips of his frost-bitten fingers with a saw after one expedition.
