This is Mamoudou Gassama.
The 22-year-old from Mali has made headlines for using quick thinking and athleticism to save a 4-year-old child, hanging from a balcony.
Gassama’s impressive actions have earned him comparisons with Marvel’s web-slinger, Spiderman.
After effortlessly making his ascent up four storeys, encouraged by a crowd of onlookers, Gassama grabbed the boy and took him to safety.
Gassama has since received praise for his heroics from the Mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, who tweeted: ‘Congratulations to Mamoudou Gassama for his brave
act that helped save a child’s life last night. I had the pleasure to talk with him today by phone, to thank him warmly.’
