Paralympic champion Jessica-Jane Applegate prepares to dive in – but it's no ordinary pool.

The 3D installation was the work of artist Joe Hill, who drew the three-metre-by-six-metre creation on the pavement outside the Sportspark at the University of East Anglia.

The stunt was to promote the Sport Relief Swimathon taking place at the Sportspark on Sunday, March 23.
