I'm mopside down
Fearless climbers dangle 300ft in the air while taking on daredevil cleaning jobs ahead of Champions League final
Cleaners scaled Cardiff's Principality Stadium giving it a good scrub down ahead of the final on June 3
A FEARLESS climber dangles from ropes 300ft up to clean up the stadium which will host the Champions League final.
Abseilers with hoses scaled masts at Cardiff’s 76,500-seat Principality Stadium, where the game will take place on June 3.
Sean Turley, of Summit Rope Access, said: “You have to have a good head for heights to get the job done.
“We specialise at working at heights. We have worked on the Principality Stadium for about 17 years, more or less since it opened so we are very used to it now.
“Everyone has specialist training before they start working for us including an industrial abseiling course.”
An expected 180million are expected to watch the final on TV on June 3.
Stadium boss Mark Williams said: “The mast maintenance attracts attention as passers-by marvel at the abseilers at work.
“The guys have carried out all high level painting and cleaning for as long as the stadium has been standing and they always do a great job.”
