A Pembroke graduate scooped £29,000 after beating TV quiz titansThe Eggheads single-handedly.

Hadrian Ainsworth was left to fight alone after all his team mates – also Pembroke graduates – were eliminated.

Raptures..Hadrian netted the Pembroke Quad Runners £29,000

And the Law student pulled off a stunning victory for the Pembroke Quad Runners when he correctly identified Qaboos Bin Said as the Sultan of Oman.

Presenter Jeremy Vine said: “I told you it was possible – well done.”

Viewers showed their support on Twitter, with Frida Larsson writing: “Unbelievable tekkers! Well done Hadrian for taking down the eggheads.”

It was a remarkable feat for the Pembroke Quad Runners – the five Eggheads had won their last 28 games.

The quiz super-group – which includes Who Wants to Be a Millionaire champion Judith Keppel – handed Hadrian the initiative when they blundered in the final round.
