Crossword Genius

Point to the Spanish swimmer (3)


I believe the answer is:


'swimmer' is the definition.
(eels swim)

'point to the spanish' is the wordplay.
'point' becomes 'E' (compass point).
'to the spanish' becomes 'el' ('the' in Spanish).

(Other definitions for eel that I've seen before include "Slimy fish" , "Slithery fish" , "Creature like conger or moray" , "Snake-like sea creature" , "Teleost fish" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
