Chinese doctors have removed a 20-centimetre long spoon which was stuck in a man’s throat for a year.

The man, named as Mr Zhang, swallowed the spoon in 2017. However, he suffered no pain or discomfort and did not seek medical attention to remove the utensil.

It wasn’t until he was recently hit in the chest that the spoon became a problem.

It took two hours to retrieve the spoon, with the procedure carrying a risk of perforating his oesophagus.

Mr Zhang recovered well from the procedure and was discharged two days later.
