A Chinese man has become an internet sensation after he was photographed driving while receiving IV treatment.

A series of pictures of the motorist was taken by another driver, Zhou Tao, in the city of Xi'an in western China's Shaanxi province.

"I couldn't believe it when I saw the IV pole sticking out fo the window and the driver receiving treatment," said Zhou.

"At one point I was right next to the man and could see the gauze on his hand where the needle went in.

"He obviously didn't have enough space in the front for the IV pole so he had put it in the back, behind him, sticking out of the window.

"Other motorists couldn't believe it either, they were sounding their horns at him. Perhaps they were worried he might fall asleep!"

The pictures of the man - who has been nicknamed 'Injection Brother' - notched up more than 100,000 hits in just two hours.

People have been commenting that he must be the busiest man in China - and the best at multi-tasking.
