Don’t try this one at home. Just in case you have a Sugarloaf Mountain in your back yard.
Max Whitlock has had quite a week at the Olympics. Having won Team GB’s first ever gymnastics gold for a near flawless floor routine in Rio a few nights ago, he immediately followed it up by winning another gold on the pommel horse.
You’d think that a couple of gold medals would be a decent enough reminder of his trip to Brazil, but Whitlock had other ideas.
As a tweet from the 23-year-old revealed, he wanted to remember his time in Rio with a special picture on top of the city’s iconic Sugarloaf Mountain.

Having already proven that he’s one of the best gymnasts in the world, you’d probably trust Whitlock to grab a hold of a couple of railings and hold his own body in the air for a few seconds, but the fact he decided to do this on top of the 400m-high peak just makes us feel nervous.
Needless to say, we won’t be encouraging anyone to try and recreate such a pose any time soon. Even if you are lucky enough to find yourself in Rio de Janeiro.
