BEIJING (AFP) - A Chinese man with no arms clocked up 160,000 kilometres of driving with his feet - but no licence - before he was stopped by police on a motorway, media reported Thursday.

"During an investigation, (police) discovered a man wearing a short sleeve T-shirt with empty sleeves, with his left leg controlling the steering wheel," news website Jingchuwang said.

The 45-year-old, surnamed Guo, was apprehended on a motorway in the central province of Hubei, the report said.

"Police immediately requested him to get out of the car, and saw the driver use his big toe and second toe on his right foot to put the gearstick into neutral, before using his right foot to turn the key," it added.
