Everest – mountain or molehill? It seems conquering the world's highest peak is child's play these days as Jordan Romero of Big Bear, California became the youngest-ever, aged 13, last week while Sherpa Apa reached the summit for a record 20th time. But former England rugby player Josh Lewsey was not so lucky after he had to abandon his attempt when his oxygen supply froze 500ft from the top. Meanwhile the two youngest round-the-world solo sailors, Mike Perham of Potters Bar (17 when he circumnavigated) and Australian Jessica Watson (who finished on 15 May, three days before her 17th birthday) have become an item. We can expect even younger record-breaking kids soon.

But first she must overcome the chorus of religious disapproval within her own community. On the evidence of Ambreen: The Girl Boxer (Channel 4, Friday), that looks to be a far tougher opponent than the ones she faces inside the ropes.
