What better way to cure a New Year’s eve hangover than a New Year’s day dip in ice cold water.

Thousands of Dutch revellers braved the chilly North Sea in what has become an annual affair across seaside towns the Netherlands.

In fewer numbers but equally as courageous was a hardy group of Italians who launched themselves off a bridge in Rome and into the freezing waters of the Tiber river.

The annual Tiber Dive has been celebrated on the first day of the new year since 1946.

The Russians were also in on the New Years Day swimming action in shivery Siberia.
