London 2012: Swimmer's torso immortalised in sculpture

Former Olympian Mark Foster has had his body immortalised in stone.

The Bath swimmer, a former Strictly Come Dancing contestant, has probably one of the best known torsos in the country.

Now a sculpture of it by Ben Dearnley has been moved into place in his home city.

The artwork is the first in a citywide sculpture trail which will be present until the end of the Paralympic Games on 9 September.
