Making a New Year splash in Rome's Tiber


Since 1946 exhibitionists and athletes have been diving the 17 metres off the Ponte Cavour in Rome into the icy River Tiber to celebrate the advent of a new year.

This year, four divers took part, some with more style than others, diving or jumping into the freezing waters of the Italian capital.
