The dare devil previously angered Cambridge University after partaking in some parkour across the institution's rooftops.

While the rest of us gazed on in awe, Cambridge told him off for "trespassing".

The freerunner started in 2007 after "a very tough time" at school. "I needed something to focus on and Parkour filled that space perfectly."
