WATCH: Man climbs Christ the Redeemer statue, takes ultimate selfie


A travel company boss captured what could be the ultimate selfie after photographing himself at the top of Brazil’s iconic Christ The Redeemer statue.

Very few people are able to climb the landmark in Rio de Janeiro, but Lee Thompson was able to convince the Brazilian tourist board to let him scale the monument in 2014.

It took the 31-year-old almost half an hour to reach the summit of 124ft-high statue, climbing narrow steps where a single misplaced move would have resulted in serious injury, or worse.
