Singapore adventurer and motivational speaker Khoo Swee Chiow, 48, has become the first man in South-east Asia to reach the summit of K2 in Pakistan.

The Seagate K2 2012 expedition saw Mr Khoo reach the summit on the morning of July 31 after a 32-day climb in sub-zero temperatures.

He was accompanied by an international team of 10 other climbers. K2 is considered the world's most treacherous and technically challenging mountain.

Mr Khoo has tackled Mount Everest three times since 1998.
