Basking in global acclaim and hero worship after his sensational climb and subsequent rescue of a child from a four-storey building, Malian migrant Mamoudou Gassama has begun living his dream in France.
Days after he was received at the Elysee Palace by French President Emmanuel Macron with a promise to make him a citizen, the heroic climber has started training as a fire-fighter.
The 22-year-old brave Malian took to his twitter handle today and posted pictures of himself undergoing training with the fire service.
Here are some of the photos taken at the Champerret barracks of the Pompiers De Paris, which show the African hero being tutored on the workings of a firefighter vehicle, as well as other tricks of the trade.
You bet Gassama will do a good job as a fireman. Bravo!
