Fu Wanxiang, 89, has become an online star for selling broiled pears in Nanjing, capital city of East China's Jiangsu province. The unlikely Internet icon became popular after his family story was posted online. He has a disabled wife and son, but Fu has continued his business to support his family more than 30 years since he should have retired. He has earned a good reputation for never over-charging and selling tasty broiled pears. Fu has touched by the online support and it has also helped boost his business.(Xinhua/Sun Can)
