Professor resembling Einstein becomes popular online

A professor at a university in East China's Fujian province became an instant hit online earlier this year because he looks like Albert Einstein.

Gary Manzo, a 68-year-old American, has taught English and sociology for more than three years in China. He is popular among his students and became an Internet celebrity after comparison photos of him and Einstein were put online.

His students gave him the nickname, Professor "Walk Slowly", because the pronunciation of his family name is similar to the Chinese word "man zou", which means "walk slowly". He uses the name and prints it on his business card.
