Watch: Santa spotted zip-lining in Rio!

Orlagh Bailey

Santa traded in his sleigh recently, choosing a zip-line as his weapon of choice to tackle Rio's iconic Sugarloaf Mountain. Crowds of eager children gathered at the base of the 396 metre mountain to watch their hero show off one of his very many skills.

It's clear that old saint Nic isn't afraid of heights, as he waved and smiled as cable cars whizzed by.

With Christmas just a few days away, we hope the next sighting will involve a sack full of gifts.
