Eddie the Eagle Edwards swooped in to open a Stroud man's new gym in Cheltenham last week.

The skiing legend attended the launch party for énergie Fitness on Thursday.

Cheltenham mayor Roger Whyborn was also in attendance at the opening of the Blaisdon Way gym.

The gym is owned by Kevin Norman, originally from Stroud.
