It is one of the most famous scenes in modern movie history and now film fans can bid for the outfit worn by Tom Cruise when his character was suspended from the ceiling in an audacious heist in Mission: Impossible.

The costume, including a rubber headpiece, glasses, gloves and black jacket, T-shirt, trousers and boots, is expected to fetch around £7,000 at auction.

It was worn by Cruise's character Ethan Hunt in the first Mission: Impossible film when he broke into CIA headquarters and dodged an elaborate alarm system to steal a list of secret agents.

Cruise, who is famous for filming his own stunts, has starred in five Mission: Impossible films, with the latest - Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation - out this week.

The suspension suit is going under the hammer at Christie's in South Kensington, London, on September 10 as part of its annual Out Of The Ordinary auction.

The auction house, in Old Brompton Road, will open its doors on Monday August 3 ahead of the sale to give the people a glimpse at some of the lots, which also include the running shoes worn by Roger Bannister when he ran the first sub-four-minute mile in 1954.
