Alex Ovechkin’s tour of China is in full swing, and the videos of his interactions with fans are something to behold.

The Washington Capitals star is spending five days in Beijing as an international ambassador for the NHL. So far, he held a youth hockey clinic and visited with a 10-year-old superfan.

But it hasn’t been strictly a work trip for Ovechkin. The Russian has also gotten in some sightseeing like any tourist would. He has seen the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven and Shougang Park, one of the main venues for the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing.

And it didn’t take long before Ovechkin dined on some Peking duck, the famous Chinese delicacy.
