Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has taken his affection for China – and efforts to curry favour with officials – to the next level.
Following his early morning smog-jog past the Forbidden City two weeks ago, the multi-billionaire is back in Beijing and took the plunge into Beijing's Houhai lake this morning – with first child Maxima cradled in his entrepreneurial arms.
‘Good morning, Beijing! Maxima and I kicked off this beautiful spring morning with a swim in Houhai lake. Still a little chilly :),’ he wrote on Facebook this morning (at least someone's VPN is working).
