That's one hangover !

Doctors in Belarus have treated a man who was more than 22 times over the drink driving limit.

Yuri Kherkov, 29, was found unconscious outside a pub in the town of Buda-Koshlevo after drinking the equivalent of five bottles of vodka.

He was taken to hospital where tests revealed he had 1170 mg of alcohol per 100 ml of blood) - more than twice the limit at which doctors say a person would normally die.

A doctor who treated him said: "He was unconscious for two days and when he woke up had a huge headache.

"But the level this man had in him was what we would expect after he had drunk five bottles of vodka, one straight after the other. I am amazed he is still alive and seems to have made a full recovery."
