An Italian gymnast attempts to do a backwards flip in front of his friends and lands it very painfully.

18-year-old Nicolai Bosca has been training for five years in acrobatics and usually lands his flips perfectly fine.

Nicolai said: “People weren’t too worried if I hurt myself too much because they joke that I’m made of iron, even if it can be painful sometimes!”

The young gymnastics coach also teaches parkour; a form of acrobatics involving running, jumping, and climbing outdoors. 

Talking about parkour, Nicolai said: “I was a member of a cheerleading team when I discovered this new world of acrobatics – it gives me a great feeling of freedom. 

“I can perform my tricks anywhere and everywhere and in any condition – as long as it’s safe for myself or others to do so.”
