During his round of 16 of the tournament Padel Fest in Venezuela, Aitor Garcia caused a sensation on the canvas by hitting a shot from elsewhere.

Lobbed by his opponent, the Spaniard calmly goes backwards, until he begins to accelerate when the ball bounces on the carpet. While we have the feeling that he is trying to pass through the glass, the 86th player in the world jumps to support himself on the glass and rise into the air.

The 30-year-old suddenly hits his bajada more than 2,50 meters from the ground before landing on his feet, while his opponent, no doubt surprised, was unable to put the ball back.

A spectacular technique called Spider-Man which is far from a momentary inspiration, as Aitor “Peter Parker” Garcia explains: “It's a movement that I invented nine or ten years ago. I use it a bit for the show, for people to have fun and to create a little show."
