A ex-marathon runner has been forced to live in isolation after suddenly growing a huge tumour on his back.
Just two years ago Li Yimo was known a super-fit, a keen runner and "model blood donor".
The villager from Yulin City in southern China, said he still does not know the cause of the sudden and rapidly developing growth.
He said: "I've always been a very healthy person. I used to run marathons and I even have certificates from when I gave blood."
He was known as a "model donor" because of the numerous times he gave blood - until he started growing the huge tumour on his back.
"In 2015 the tumour began to grow and it increases in size every day," he said.
