The Dutch swimmer won gold in Beijing, having been diagnosed with cancer seven years earlier.

We hear why he decided to stop competing, and instead turn his attention to charity fundraising - setting up his own foundation and raising millions for cancer research through long-distance swimming endurance events.

Produced and presented by Matthew Kenyon.
