Most of us usually avoid bees - but this man can't get enough of them. Literally.

Chinese beekeeper She Ping broke his own record by attracting a massive 468,000 bees to cover his body – which weighed a hefty 45.65kg.

The 34-year-old held the previous record which he set in April 2013 by covering himself in 331,000 of the insects - a mere 33.1kg compared to his new record.

But the brave bloke wanted to go one step further and break his own record – and he succeeded!

In order attract this incredible number of stingers, he stripped off and placed 16 queen bees on himself. After waiting for around 40 minutes, he'd managed to attract all 468,000 bees, which covered his entire body and most of his face.

We dread to think how he managed to shake them all off afterwards – or if he got any stings. Ouch!
