Supersonic skydiver Felix Baumgartner wants to teach UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon how to skydive.
Baumgartner made the offer on Tuesday (local time) during a photo opportunity where the UN chief spoke admiringly of Baumgartner's death-defying leap last week from a balloon 39km above the Earth, breaking the sound barrier and setting a world record.
When Ban said that he had never skydived, the Austrian offered up his services.
"Here's your chance, I'll teach you to skydive," said Baumgartner, who earned the nickname "Fearless Felix".
While Ban looked less-than-enthusiastic about the skydiving lesson, he did call Baumgartner "the most courageous person in the world."
Ban's spokesman, Martin Nesirky, told reporters that while the secretary-general usually deals with weighty issues involving conflicts and wars, he also thinks it important to engage other parts of society.
