In September this year, Nathan Paulin had completed a 600-metre crossing from the Eiffel Tower to the other side of the river Seine.
He walked along the slackline suspended 70 metres above the ground, at one point sitting and lying on the rope before arriving at the Chaillot Theatre at the end of the half hour performance.
