An incredible condition that sees a Chinese man sleep for six months of the year and stay awake for the rest of it has puzzled doctors.

Li Zhiming's family has to look after the 74-year-old throughout the entire time he's asleep.

They said that they have to make him sit and feed him warm soup.

They also have to make him wear a NAPPY because he doesn't even wake up to go to the bathroom.

"When he is sleeping it is like he is in a coma," the Sun quoted Fu Yip, his daughter-in-law, as saying.

"We can't rouse him at all - if we put spoonfuls of soup in his mouth he swallows automatically but otherwise there's no response.

"Then when he wakes up he doesn't sleep for six months - wandering around the streets at night to amuse himself or watching television," she added.
