A brain tumour survivor has demolished “the worlds” register for the fastest transatlantic intersection by a female rower.

Kiko Matthews, 36, rowed the 21 ft-long Soma of Essex for up to 16 hours per day, sleeping in two-hour shifts.

Shaving almost a week off the previous record, Ms Matthews roamed 3,000 admiralty mile from Gran Canaria to Barbados in 49 days.

She said she wanted to “inspire wives to challenge themselves.”

Ms Matthews, who grew up in Herefordshire but now lives in London, was diagnosed with Cushing’s disease in 2009.
