Elite sporting stars withered and some questioned the humanity in forcing international cricket and tennis stars to play on in such conditions

And since this is still just the start of summer, it seemed like a good time to encourage you all to share your personal tips and tricks for surviving a summer heatwave.

I'm sure the rest of the Ys community is dying to know. So please get cracking and either leave your comments below, or submit a post via your unique member dashboard.

And above all, stay cool.
