A daredevil cheated death after doing a forward flip over a sports car speeding towards him at 60mph.
Shocking footage shows the extreme sportsman Oleg Sherstyachenko, 25, running towards the moving BMW’s bonnet before flinging himself over the top of the car and performing a roll in mid air.
The camera cuts to the inside of the car to show driver Amiran Sardarov – a Russian social media personality – shouting out in shock.
Sherstyachenko lands safely on the ground – once Amiran has sped past in the luxury motor.
After the stunt Amiran appears to be visibly shaken by his near miss with Oleg, in the city of Yekaterinburg in central Russia’s Sverdlovsk Oblast region.
A video of the stunt was later posted online where it immediately went viral.
Oleg has been practicing free running stunts – also known as parkour – since the age of 14.
He has become an internet sensation in Russia because of his death-defying antics.
Just seconds before the stunt, Amiran asks Oleg one last time if he still wants to do the stunt.
Oleg replies: “Of course, there is some insecurity, but we will make it happen.
“Everything will be fine. Maybe we’ll have to call an ambulance. It is a joke, of course. No need for an ambulance.”
Oleg’s friends say he was shivering right before the jump, but it is unclear whether this was due to nerves or because he was only wearing a T-shirt in the cold.
Netizens were stunned by Oleg’s latest stunt, with many asking whether Amiran would have faced criminal charges if he had knocked the daredevil down.
