China's couriers: Delivering the Christmas parcels

Like many places across the world, retail sales in China spike around Christmas.

And more and more people there are doing their shopping online. China's internet giant Alibaba recently reported sales of over $9bn (£5.8bn) in a single day, setting a new world record.

Yang Hua is one of millions of couriers working across the country to deliver those packages every day.
