The questions on University Challenge are notoriously tough and require an incredibly wide range of knowledge.

However, four students from the University of Edinburgh, Max Fitz-James, Matt Booth, Marco Malusa and Robbie Campbell showed off their intellect in the final of the long-running quiz show.

The team beat Oxford's St Edmund hall before novelist Sebastian Faulks presented them with the trophy.

Captain Fitz-James told BBC Scotland’s The Nine: “The best training was watching past episodes and doing it together as a team, so we would get together every Monday and watch past episodes, pause and try and answer the questions before the team.

“This is the third year in a row that Edinburgh reached the semi-finals so we were very pleased we got one further than that, and even more pleased when we finally lifted the trophy.”
