Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch has said that while he's not a 'macho alpha male' he does like 'living on the edge a bit'.

The 37-year-old star told High Life magazine, "I'm not a macho alpha male sort of guy but I do like living on the edge a bit."

He added: "I like skydiving, snowboarding, kite surfing and I ride a motorbike around London."

Cumberbatch can be seen as the cover model on the current issue of High Life.
