Alain Robert, famous as the French Spiderman, has performed a new exploit - he climbed the tallest observation wheel in the world. The panoramic Ferris wheel in Singapore boasts the height of 165 meters - this is the height of a 44-storey building. The climb took the French Spiderman just 45 minutes.

The French Spiderman climbed more than 80 skyscrapers around the globe. The climber doesn't usually use any ropes or karabiners while performing his feats. Before he started climbing the tallest buildings, Alain Robert was a professional cliff climber.

Swiss watchmaker Zenith presented Alain Robert with its chronograph wristwatch to accompany the climber during his latest feat.
