Alain Robert , known as ‘French Spiderman’ always insists on the best possible view and is happy to scale some of the world’s most teetering skyscrapers to secure it. One of his latest visits was at the 185 metre-high Abu Dhabi Investment Authority Building and, opting for the al fresco route, scuttled up the 35 storeys in a record 63 minutes, as tens of thousands of spectators craned their necks far below. He has also been in Hong Kong, Madrid and many other buildings around the world. (Link 1 | Link 2)
