PIC BY FISHEYE PHOTOGRAPHY/ CATERS NEWS - (PICTURED: Alexandre having an ice bath) - So you think YOURE cold? These stunning images show ice diver Alexandre Voyer swimming in Antarctic waters - where the temperature is 0C. Frenchman Alexandre, 37, braved the icy waters on his first free dive in the area - to swim amongst seals and whales near the huge ice caps. Alex and his diving buddy, Gilles Rigaud, planned to dive for almost two hours, but were forced to jump out of the water early when the icy temperatures became too much to copy with. Alexandre, who lives in Paris, said: It was so cold that we had to put warm water inside our wetsuits before getting in the water, and we had to eat a lot too, to make sure we had enough energy.
