While this will be gratefully appreciated, it does mean that the importance of keeping hydrated is higher than ever.

The European Food Safety Authority recommends that men and women should drink around 2 and 1.6 litres of fluid each day respectively. However this is only the basis of what should be consumed and if the temperatures are high, then more water should be drank.
