Earlier today, celebrated swimmer Neil Agius met with Prime Minister Robert Abela after the former completed a record-breaking swim between Sicily and Malta on behalf of Wave of Change, an anti-pollution campaign.

 

The recipient of a shiny memento to commemorate his achievement, Neil had the opportunity to share details of his swim with the Prime Minister, who in turn expressed his gratitude for the swimmer's drive and initiative towards a good cause.

Meanwhile, Neil may soon be in for another mammoth challenge after saying last Sunday: "we're only getting started."

The term ‘drag queen’ is pretty well known (thank you Ru Paul’s drag race!) but how about ‘drag king’? Well, it’s about to get a whole lot more popular as Malta welcomes award-winning show Joan!
