Solo round the world yachtsman Alex Thomson performs a daring feat on board his high-speed yacht, Hugo Boss.

In this video, he climbs up the 30-meter high mast of the moving vessel and dives into the ocean.

This is not the first stunt we've seen from Alex - two years ago he completed the 'Keel Walk', a stunt that has become famous throughout the world.

See both stunts below.
