BEIJING: A photo of a Chinese boy whose hair is encrusted with ice after his hour-long walk to school in freezing temperatures went viral.

Wang Fuman, also known as "Frost Boy, or Ice Boy", is from Ludian in China's southwestern Yunnan province.

The eight-year-old has melted hearts across the world after Fu Heng, the principal of the school where the boy goes, took a photo of him and uploaded it on the Chinese social media site.

The boy showed up at school red faced with snow covering his hair and eyebrows, braving freezing temperatures of -9°C to sit his final exams.

The photo has stirred debate about the impact of poverty on children in rural regions.
