Tom Cruise injured on set of Mission: Impossible

Tom Cruise is famous for doing his own insane stunts for the Mission: Impossible movies, but his most recent one has taken a painful turn.

Cruise was recently filmed attempting to jump from a platform to a rooftop at the start of filming in London. 

In the video obtained by TMZ, it appears he fails to leap far enough and winds up clinging to the side of the building.

He then pulls himself back up, but can clearly be seen limping after the accident.

The Sun reports the star has been training for a year in order to carry out the extreme stunts needed for the next installment.

Cruise plays Ethan Hunt in the movie franchise, which also stars Henry Cavill, Simon Pegg, Jeremy Renner and Vanessa Kirby.

Details of the new film are being kept under wraps, but Cruise and other stars of the film were recently snapped in New Zealand for filming.
