A death-defying daredevil known as the 'French Spiderman' has been arrested after climbing up a 700ft skyscraper without a harness.

Office workers were stunned as self-declared "badass" Alain Robert suddenly appeared outside their windows as he scaled the GT International Tower in Makati, Philippines.

Extraordinary pictures and video on social media show the 56-year-old stuntman - clad in a dark shirt and yellow trousers with a camera strapped to his head - climbing the 47-storey tower without any safety equipment.

The urban climber and Guinness World Record holder later told reporters following his arrest: "There is the good crazy and the bad crazy... but what people are saying about me is I'm a badass."
