MacAskill carried out a series of stunts on top of the 174ft (53m) tall crane for a new short film.

The three-minute short is being filmed at locations across Glasgow and will be shown during the Commonwealth Games.

The 28-year-old rider from Skye shot to fame in 2009 after posting videos of his stunts on YouTube.
