A freestyle basketballer showcased his incredible skills by performing a mesmerising routine with Tokyo acting as his stunning backdrop.

Kengo Maeda took to the streets of his home city in order to showcase his amazing freestyle basketball skills.

The 21-year-old college student fluidly moved the ball around his body as if it was an extension of his body, while performing his mind-blowing spins, tricks and flips.

Kengo said: “I played street basketball, then I found freestyle basketball on YouTube.

“I watched a lot of freestyle videos and challenged myself to copy some of the moves and create some of my own.

“I feel great when I complete a trick and perform a routine in front of people. I have to create new tricks no one’s ever done before.

“I just want to play until I physically can’t anymore.”
