Two extreme sports professionals undertake a daring wingsuit fly-by of the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro. Norwegian Espen Fadnes and Frenchman Ludovic Woerth decided to attempt the stunt after drawing up a list of their dream flight destinations. The pair were ferried into position on trikes - the motorised hand gliders used to give tourists an aerial view of the city - before making the leap from around 2000m, with Fadnes flying below the arm of the iconic monument, and Woerth passing above it filming. The wingsuit fliers landed at a Rio roundabout in the early hours, before heading back to their hotel for a celebratory breakfast beer.
