Daredevil Adili Wuxor has set a new world record by spending 60 days walking on a tightrope!

He walked for an average of five hours a day on steel wires suspended over the Bird's Nest Stadium in Beijing, China.

During the two-month challenge he lived on his own in a small cabin on the roof of the stadium.

Watch China's "tightrope prince" as he snatches his sixth world record!
