A daredevil has been caught tightroping across a busy road inbetween two mountains.

Caio Afeto, 30, from Brazil, can be seen walking across the rope in the nerve-wracking video, which was captured by a drone.

Cars can be seen zooming past down below, and at one point Caio looks as though he’s struggling to balance.

The breathtaking footage was filmed on a drone by Caio’s friend Emows Lemos.

Caio is a professional outdoor athlete, and takes part in activities such as rock climbing and base jumping.

Caio said: “The highway I was crossing is special because it connects two States of Brazil, Espírito Santo where I live, and Minas Gerais where I was born.

“I was scared that I would distract drivers and create a dangerous situation where the police would be involved, but I don’t think many drivers took any notice of me.

“The locals watching me on foot were very entertained as I balancing on the line- they’d probably never seen anything like that before and were surprised.

“I’m always looking for new adventures involving the sports I enjoy.

“Experiences such as this one have showed me that nothing is impossible, and I’m always pushing myself hard to prove that.”
