Chinese scientist Yuan Longping, who was known as the “father of hybrid rice” and helped save millions from hunger with his work, passed away last Saturday (May 22) at the age of 90.

A funeral for the national hero was held in Changsha last week and reportedly drew tens of thousands of mourners from across the country, including Hongkong actor Alex Man, whom Singaporeans know best from classic Mediacorp drama The Golden Pillow.
