    In one clip, Magne is seen running straight up the facade of a hotel in the city centre and clutching onto a brick outcrop.

    In an incredible display of agility, similar to characters in the Assassin’s Creed video game, he uses his immense upper body strength to push himself up two storeys, jumping between balconies and walls.

    Another video shows him jumping over railings to climb down an apartment block – all just to avoid taking the stairs.

    Magne has nine years experience in free climbing

    Magne said: 'It's important for me to emphasise that none of the videos were done without preparation and careful planning, we never go blindly into a challenge'

    Magne, who has nine years experience in free climbing, said: ‘It’s important for me to emphasise that none of the videos were done without preparation and careful planning, we never go blindly into a challenge’

    And in his most daring stunt, he is captured leaping off a rooftop, before performing a mid-air somersault and then landing on a neighbouring building.

    In a caption for the video he writes: ‘Years of training. Hours of preparation. Do NOT try if you’re not trained.’

    Now with nine years of parkour and free running experience under his belt, Magne started out practising flips in his back garden and eventually progressed into gymnastics and free climbing.

    Magne said: ‘I have only ever had one real injury; I broke my foot when I thought I could do a big jump without a proper warmup in Copenhagen.

    ‘It’s important for me to emphasise that none of the videos were done without preparation and careful planning, we never go blindly into a challenge.

    ‘We are not careless daredevils, just curious souls!’
