A man who has been dubbed a 'real life spiderman' has been spotted climbing a massive 662ft tower in broad daylight.

A climber nicknamed the real life French Spiderman has scaled the 662ft (202m) Heron Tower in the City of London.
Alain Robert made the illegal (and incredibly dangerous) climb earlier today. Police officers had arrived at 1.37pm but were too late to stop the 56-year-old.

Mr Robert, whose feats have included climbing Dubai’s 2,717ft (828m) Burj Khalifa, made easy work of the tower. As always he didn’t bother with safety gear and just used gloves and chalk.
Mr Robert claimed he only decided what building he would climb on Monday.

He said: ‘I saw it. I touched it a bit. I tried it just a tiny bit. ‘I am not really knowing much. It is only really when I start climbing that I know. I need to feel it.
‘There has been 44 years in which I have been climbing. This is what I know as a way of living and expressing myself and living my dreams, my passion and living my life as fully as I can.
‘Definitely it dangerous. I have a certain knowledge. I have a solid background.’

Mr Robert is in prime condition – he is 5ft 5in and weighs about 7st 12lb (50kg), with a low fat ratio of bones to muscle which helps his extreme athleticism and skill.
Even if you were as good as him it would still be very dangerous and it would make your family very worried.

Mr Robert added: ‘It is never easy for family having a dad who is doing that kind of stuff but they are used to it. They never asked me to change my lifestyle.
‘They trust me. They think I am capable to succeed each time I am doing something, but at the end of the day it is still a bit scary for sure. They are proud.’

Mr Robert always gets arrested when he gets back down to ground level so you would have to think about that as well.
He has managed to complete 160 building climbs since the mid-1990s, including scaling Taiwan’s Taipei 101 and the Lloyds building in London
