The stuntman who parachuted into the London 2012 Olympics opening ceremony dressed as James Bond has died in a wing-diving accident, according to UK press reports.

Mark Sutton, 41, reportedly died on Wednesday when he crashed into a ridge near Martigny, close to the French border, during a three-day wing-diving event in Switzerland.

The former army officer played the role of Daniel Craig’s Bond in the most memorable sequence of the ceremony, accompanying another stuntman dressed as Queen Elizabeth II.

The short film showed 007 being summoned to Buckingham Palace before skydiving with the Queen into the Olympic Stadium.

Wing divers wear special suits which allow them to glide through the air.

Police said they did not yet know the cause of the accident.
