Luis said: “This is by far the most dangerous stunt I’ve tried.

“The only thing that was keeping me up was my strength – all the weights I’ve tried in the gym were building up to this moment.

Luis trained for years building up for this stunt and admits that it’s not for the faint-hearted.

He said: “I’d recommend it to anyone, it’s an amazing sense of achievement.

“You’ve got to know what you’re doing though because if you fall you’ve had it – the drop is too much.
