The 21-year-old from Russia, combines elements of parkour, acrobatics and extreme art in order to carry out these difficult-to-watch tricks.

Nikita said, "I started doing this four years ago on buildings about ten floors high.

"The first time it was very scary and exciting; I couldn't look down.

"Gradually I began to get myself under control and now I'm confident at any height."
