When LeBron James appeared at the Beijing Chaoyang Gymnasium, more than 2,000 fans started yelling and cheering to welcome their hero.

This was the seventh visit for the NBA star to China - and it is special both for the player and his fans.

Leading the Miami Heat to win the NBA Championship this year, winning the MVP title in the NBA finals, and bringing home an Olympic gold medal - James said he has had a perfect 2012.

For the fans who have seen him before, they have nothing but admiration for the progress of their star man.

He will stay four days in the country and visit two cities - Beijing and Shanghai.
