Speaking on Sky News this morning, Frank Hewetson said: "I think it will happen again for sure. I'm just not going to comment about whether it will happen in Russia, I just don't have the mental head space to make that sort of decision at the moment."

"But I personally want to go back to part of the Arctic."
