Heavy snow swept through many parts of Europe and China over the weekend, causing disruptions in flights and railway lines.

In Europe, cars parked by the roadsides were stacked with thick layers of snow, public transportations were delayed and many were also stranded in the airport as their flights were cancelled. The English Premier League match on Sunday was also affected and the players were reported to suffer from frostbites.

The extreme weather also hit China, especially the northern parts, breaking the records for the past 40 years, according to the local media.
