Anthony Joshua has joined an elite list of sporting icons to perform on the famous helipad at the top of the Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai.

The world heavyweight champion took to Instagram to post footage of him boxing in a ring constructed at the top of the third tallest hotel in the world, 689 feet above ground.

The most recognisable helipad is a huge media attraction and has played host to a select few sports personalities in the past.

Tiger Woods teed off from the platform back in 2004 while Andre Agassi and Roger Federer played tennis on it the following year. Rory McIlroy performed a bunker shot at the same spot in 2011 and David Coulthard pulled off a few donuts in a Formula One car in 2013.
