Holidaymaker almost loses toe from spider bite

An intrepid traveller who survived swimming with sharks on the trip of alifetime told how he was so badly bitten by a venomous spider on the sameholiday that doctors threatened to amputate his toe. Super-fit Adam Knight,29, marked the end of an amazing 12 months in August 2019 - with two branchesof his Angel Swim London business, teaching swimming to babies and toddlersthriving and a year in to a great relationship with his former university pal,Erin Wigglesworth, 26, now a press officer - by jetting to South Africa for aweek. He and his friend, videographer Rob Murray, 33, had a ball, swimmingwith dolphins, humpback whales and even oceanic blacktip sharks, in thecoastal province of KwaZulu-Natal. And when Adam noticed a painful blister onthe second toe of his left foot on their last day, he assumed  his flippershad rubbed  - boarding a flight home, where he was due at his dad Carl'swedding on September 1 - without a second thought. Experiencing cold sweatsand tiredness on the 11-hour flight, he  thought it was 'post-holiday fatigue'and, despite feeling even worse the next day, Adam, of Fulham, west London,refused to miss his 57-year-old dad's wedding to lettings director Caroline,56, at Tylney Hall Hotel and Gardens in Hampshire. "I still felt awful," hesaid. "But I put on my tuxedo, squeezed my foot into my loafers and performedmy duties as son of the groom, before dancing the night away."
