Billionaire humanitarian and Microsoft founder, Bill Gates had his hands full on-stage in Beijing today, showing a jar of human faeces.

The stunt was part of his speech at the Reinvented Toilet Expo event – a showcase for new toilet technologies.

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has spent more than $200 million on researching the field across the last seven years.

Twenty cutting-edge sanitation products were on display, intended to destroy harmful bacteria and prevent disease.

According to the BBC, the entrepreneur was helping to launch the three-day event in China – where China’s leader has made a so-called “toilet revolution” across the country a policy priority.
