Watch Real Madrid basketball star’s incredible trick shot from top of 200-ft high historic tower


This effortless trick-shot saw a professional basketball player manage to drop a ball through the hoop from more than 200ft away.

Argentine basketball player Facu Campazzo was challenged to perform the feat by the ACB Basketball League, the sport’s first division in Spain which is also known as the Endesa League.

And the 25-year-old who plays for UCAM Murcia, on loan from Real Madrid’s basketball team, was only too happy to oblige.

The video, which includes footage from drones and mounted cameras, captured the moment when the Facu holds the ball with one hand and calmly drops it from the top of the Cathedral of St Mary of La Seu Vella in Lleida, a city in the Spain’s western region of Catalonia.

The ball then drops some 60 metres (almost 200 ft) before swishing perfectly through the hoop as everybody starts to whoop and cheer.

Facu then climbs down the 238 steps of the tall bell tower to rapturous applause.

It later emerged that it was not his first attempt, but the player was lauded nonetheless for completing the near-impossible task.

The Argentine player trained in Argentina and signed for Real Madrid for the 2014-2015 season.

With Real Madrid, he managed to win all possible titles, including the Supercopa Endesa, King Cup, League and Euro League.

However, due to a lack of playing time, the player who also features in his national team recently left Real Madrid to play for UCAM Murcia on loan.

The La Seu Vella is a Romanesque and Gothic cathedral built in the 12th century and overlooks the entire city of Lleida.

The historic building is currently a candidate to become a UNESCO World Heritage monument.
