MEDSPEAKUK

Thames tummy is a popular term for gastrointestinal malaise directly linked to swimming in the Thames, the river that courses through London, and receives up to half a million cubic metres of pathogen-rich sewage/week.

David Walliams of the comedy duo Little Britain, is the most famous person to suffer from the condition, acquired during his marathon 140 mile swim of the length of the Thames, which he accomplished in 8 days.
