Zara and Mike Tindall didn't let the adverse weather dampen their spirits during a charity sailing challenge at Cowes Week on Thursday. The couple, who have been married for four years, looked even more loved-up than ever as they competed in the Artemis Challenge on the Isle of Wight.

Former England rugby player Mike couldn't resist cuddling up to his wife as they stood on the deck of the team's Ocean Racing boat, with the duo putting on a tactile display as they shared a joke. Both Zara and Mike were wrapped up against the dreary summer's day, wearing matching Artemis waterproof jackets which Zara topped off with a navy cap.

Despite the wind and rain the couple appeared in high spirits as they participated in the challenge along with former French rugby stars Serge Betsen and Sylvain Marconnet, former Scotland Rugby player Gavin Hastings, and polar explorer Ben Saunders.

The couple's appearance at the event comes just days after Zara attended the annual Festival of British Eventing with their daughter Mia. On this occasion it was the adorable 18-month-old who proved the star of the show, looking the picture of cuteness in a summery yellow dress and a protective straw hat.

Meanwhile Mike has revealed that he is planning to get his nose straightened after suffering from breathing difficulties. The 36-year-old, whose has broken his nose eight times, admitted that he was reluctant to go under the knife.

"I don't really want to get it fixed but it looks like I might have to because I can't actually breathe very well. I guess it's something similar to a pug," he told The Mirror. "The problem is that if I get it done, will people say I've had it just because I'm doing TV stuff now? Because it's definitely not."
