Post-op gymnast is leg-cellent

The incredible footage shows the 21-year-old perform circular spins and back flips while wearing a prosthetic leg.

Plucky Adam, from Minnesota, then removes the leg to practise landing on one leg while performing somersaults.

Adam lost his leg after suffering lymphangiosarcoma, a rare cancer of lymphatic vessels, and he made the hit video to inspire others with disabilities.

He said: "I was hoping to show my friends and family what I was able to do again, but I also hoped that other amputees would enjoy it. I've been inspired by videos of other amputees on YouTube, such as Sarah Reinertsen."
