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.’ 


He has also been invited to the Elysee Palace by French President Emmanuel Macron. Macron has guaranteed him French citizenship for his heroics.
