Online extreme sports broadcaster Epic TV says Mark Sutton died during a gathering it had organized involving 20 wing suit pilots who were being filmed as they jumped from helicopters.
Swiss police confirmed that a 42-year-old Briton died Wednesday in a fall near Trient in the Valais region.
The 2012 Summer Games opening ceremony memorably included Sutton as a Bond double jumping with another stuntman dressed as a skydiving Queen Elizabeth II.
Valais police said Thursday that Sutton jumped from a helicopter at 10,800 feet but fell to his death after crashing into a mountain ridge.
