Leap of faith Aged 55 Hollywood action man Tom Cruise is showing no signs of slowing down after being spotted leaping from rooftop to rooftop in London on Saturday

Actor Tom Cruise body-slammed into a brick wall when a high-flying stunt he was filming for "Mission Impossible 6" went awry, according to a video released Sunday. The sixth installment in the "Mission: Impossible" franchise is now shooting in London.

As Radar's video of the superstar actor shows, he performed the unsafe stunt on Sunday but wound up limping afterwards after landing hard.

In video obtained by TMZ, Cruise is attached to a harness while making the leap. Film crew members can then be seen pulling him back to the first platform to assist him.

Even at 55 years old, Tom Cruise is still known for doing his own stunts across the various blockbusters he's starred in over the years. After taking a few steps, he bent double for a few seconds, before limping back to the edge of the building.

Danny Drinkwater to Chelsea: Leicester star odds-on to join Premier League champions
Chelsea have signed four players so far this summer - Willy Caballero, Antonio Rudiger, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Alvaro Morata. Such a strong interest in Danny Drinkwater comes as a result of Nemanja Matic's sale to Manchester United .

Meanwhile, producer David Ellison previously revealed that Cruise has been "training for a year" for his role in "Mission: Impossible 6".

A request for comment from Cruise's rep wasn't immediately returned. During the famous Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation stunt that had Cruise hanging on the outside of a plane, the actor was hit by a runway particle.

Mission: Impossible 6 is now expected to hit theaters on July 27, 2018.
