Henry 'Superman' Cavill gets muddy in Devon

Superman actor Henry Cavill took on one his toughest roles in Devon this weekend. He competed in the gruelling Commando Challenge.

The event raises money for the Royal Marines charity and Devon Air Ambulance.

He told us why he wanted to get involved:

Eleven hundred competitors joined the Hollywood actor and he took the time to pose with many of them at the end of the course.

Despite being given a little extra attention by the commandos, the mud proved no match for the Man of Steel.
