A video has emerged from Russia of a daredevil showing off his parkour skills as he jumps between two nine-storey apartment buildings.

As he flies through the air, he performs a forward somersault, before landing perfectly on the other side without so much as a wobble.

He breaks his fall with two more somersaults before raising his arms triumphantly to face the camera and cheering. 

He then climbs to the edge of the building and jumps back to the first building, followed by another forward somersault.  

Parkour, or free-running, involves climbing and jumping to difficult perches and acrobatic moves. 

The death-defying stunt was filmed in Saratov, Russia, by the man’s friends, and has since gone viral.
