A Chinese beekeeper has broken the world record for the greatest weight of bees worn on the body.

She Ping, 34, used queen bees to successfully attract more than 460,000 drones, weighing over 45 kg (99 lbs).

She Ping, from Chongqing, previously set a world record in April 2012 by covering his body with 33.1kg of bees (about 331,000 of them)

The practice of covering oneself in bees is known as 'bee bearding'. Honey bees are attracted to queen bees worn in small cages attached to the body.
