YouTube tribute to Olympic stuntman Mark Sutton

A video in tribute to Olympic stuntman Mark Sutton has been posted on YouTube today, showing footage from his previous wingsuit jumps in Norway, Italy and Switzerland.

Mr Sutton, who stood in for Daniel Craig in the opening ceremony's jump into the Olympic Stadium, died in a wingsuit flying accident yesterday while on a trip making extreme sports videos in the Swiss Alps.

On August 10, Mr Sutton posted a message and pictures on Facebook, saying: "The sun comes out for a beautiful day in Chamonix, two base wingsuit flights from Brevent then a spectacular paraglide with Mont Blanc and the glaciers glistening in the background."
