DUBAI // Fast-food mascot Ronald McDonald has taken part in a tandem skydive in the skies over The Palm Jumeirah.

A video of the publicity stunt has been published on McDonald’s Arabia’s YouTube channel.

The 41-second clip shows the fast-food chain’s famous red-and-yellow clown arriving at Skydive Dubai in confident mood.

He is then shown putting on his parachute before giving the thumbs up as the aircraft prepares to take off.

Jumping out of the aircraft while attached to an instructor, the video states he jumped from 13,000 feet and reached speeds of up to 120mph (193kph) during a one-minute freefall before landing safely.
