This picture taken and provided by Facebook yesterday shows the social media company's CEO, Mr Mark Zuckerberg (in front in grey T-shirt), running past Tiananmen Gate, the entrance to the Forbidden City, in Beijing.

He took a mask-free jog, smiling through thick smog in the Chinese capital, as he seeks greater access for his company to China, where its service is banned.
