He has set a new Mount Everest record, making it to the top for the 24th time - with his second summit in only seven days.

It was his second record in seven days, having reached the summit for the 23rd time on 15 May and he has became a guide for international companies that organise climbing expeditions.

He says he has no plans to retire, and hopes to clock up more ascents in the years to come.

"I can climb for a few more years," he told before the 23rd attempt one week ago. "I am healthy - I can keep going until I am 60 years old. With oxygen it's no big deal."
