"I wanted to dress for the occasion, because climbing Kilimanjaro is quite a big deal. generally wear Savile Row suits and I couldn't face being photographed in my hiking gear. So I took a light blue, three-piece heavy tweed to the top in a canvas carrier," the Daily Star quoted an exultant Sharma, as saying.

"I did have a bow tie in my pocket especially for the occasion, but when I got to the summit my brain had become completely scrambled from mountain sickness. When I reached the top, after three attempts to tie it, I gave up," he added. (ANI)
