An auxiliary police officer in Foshan, South China's Guangdong province, has recently become an online celebrity after a video of him showing a foreigner the way in English was published online by an internet user.

The man is Liu Yuxing, 24, who graduated from Dongbei University of Finance and Economics in Dalian, Northeast China's Liaoning province and studied in the US for two years.

On March 14, an internet user named Haishangwanpantianshi published online a short video of Liu, who was near a subway station, giving a Dutchman directions in English to scenic spots.

Liu's fluent English attracted many fans, and some media also reported on him.

The shy young man told reporters in English that "I am single now."

Liu said he loves guns and dreams of being a police officer. After completing his studies in the US, he returned to China and passed the examinations to become an auxiliary police officer in the Chanchen district in Foshan.

According to Chinese media reports, Liu saved a young woman in her 20s who tried to kill herself in April, 2015 by jumping off a bridge. Liu and his colleagues on duty rushed in to pull her back.
