American daredevil Johnny Strange has died in the Swiss Alps while attempting a wingsuit jump.

He's the latest casualty in what is regarded as one the most dangerous extreme sports.

The 23-year old found fame aged 17, when he became the youngest person to climb the so-called Seven Summits - the highest peaks on each continent.

He crashed into the ground after losing control during a jump from a 2000 metre mountain summit.
