A man has allegedly been living at an internet cafe for the last 6 years.

Li Meng, a keen gamer, is said to pay the cafe in Changchun, China a fee of around a quarter of his monthy income of 2,000 yen (£212). He is thought to earn the money by selling virtual goods on the internet.

He reportedly rarely leaves his chair, only doing so briefly to wash and buy food, reports the Beijing Times (via Business Insider).

One local said: "He generally comes at night to play the game, gets sleepy during the day and sleeps here. From time to time [he] will be out to take a bath."

Another source explained that Meng refuses to communicate with anyone unless it's online.

"I consulted the cafe owner who simply explained that having been there for so long, they barely noticed his presence and found him to be straightforward and of little annoyance," the second insider said.
