Dirk Gion, aged 40, took up the challenge '
to prove it could be done' ' He was brought up to the correct velocity by a speedboat and then switched over to a line pulled by the 575 foot cruiser MS Deutschland' Dirk managed to stay afloat behind the

As well as waterskiing we bet you hadn't realised that squirrels are also spies' Iranian authorities have recently arrested more than a dozen squirrels for espionage' 'In recent weeks, intelligence

thanks to the alertness of our intelligence services'. Iran claims the rodents were being used by Western powers in an attempt to undermine the Islamic Republic'
