Farmer who balances bikes and children on chin becomes tourist hit

Ruth Doherty

A local farmer in China, Zhu Baobing, has become a tourist and TV sensation after showing off his unusual talents: balancing tables, bikes and even children on his chin.

He got a rapturous reception when he appeared on a Chinese TV programme of CCTV in Guli, Jiangsu Province of China.

Not only did he manage to balance four bikes on his chin, he also held up three square tables, and even a child sitting in a chair.

He has now become known as 'China's First Chin' in his local area.
