A well-known Chinese climber has died while performing one of his trademark daredevil skyscraper stunts.
 
Wu Yongning had amassed thousands of followers on the social network Weibo for his dramatic short videos showing him perched atop tall buildings without the use of safety equipment.
 
Concern grew among his fans when he stopped posting updates in November.
 
It has now emerged that he died after falling from a 62-storey building in the city of Changsha.
 
Chinese media report that he was participating in a challenge to win a substantial amount of prize money.
 
The 26-year-old died on 8 November, but his death was only confirmed by his girlfriend in a post on Chinese social media a month later.
 
So-called "rooftopping" - climbing extremely tall city buildings without safety equipment - has become increasingly popular across the world in recent years.
