'Even though I've been covering all sorts of congress and conferences for more than eight years, this yawn was still spectacular. During the opening session of the 18th National Congress of Communist Party of China (CPC), we had to line up in front of the great hall of the people at 3 a.m. just to secure a better seat for pictures inside. I remember it was about five minutes before the start, I aimed my camera at the main stage, and this delegate happened to be yawning right in the middle. I always believe yawning is a human'€™s natural behaviour, let alone this was a moment before the start of the session. But, I do hope this picture would not bring any trouble to this delegate!'
