Hampshire sailor Alex Thomson has performed a daring feat by climbing the top of this high-speed yacht and diving into the ocean – all whilst the yacht was sailing at a 60 degree angle.

The 39-year-old is keen to find new ways to use his yacht and has been planning this trick for months beforehand.
