The rivalry between Cambridge University and Oxford University continues with the annual boat race on the River Thames this afternoon. Cambridge is desperate to deny Oxford its fifth Boat Race victory in seven years.
Since the races began back in 1829, Cambridge has won 81 times, while Oxford's victory tally stands at 77 races.
Police have charged a man with a public order offence after "possibly the most dramatic Boat Race in history" was temporarily halted by a swimmer who appeared to deliberately cross the path of rowers.
Trenton Oldfield, 35, narrowly avoided the blade of an Oxford oar as he swam into the path of the vessels between the two and three-mile marker while the university crews were neck and neck on Saturday afternoon.
The Boat Race's assistant umpire, Sir Matthew Pinsent, has said the race had to be stopped after the man was spotted in the water. The Olympic gold medallist said it would have been dangerous for the race to continue.
