The CEO, whose age was not specified, reportedly underwent heart bypass surgery 20 years ago and planned to go to hospital after the speech to be fitted with a new pacemaker.

However, the health expert passed away hours before the appointment while delivering a speech about healthy living and longevity.

He then turns and walks towards the centre of the stage, but energy appears to drain from his legs and he stumbles before accidentally head-butting the podium.

The health firm CEO then collapses on the ground as concerned helpers rush to his aid.

A company spokesperson confirmed that Chen was due to attend an appointment for a pacemaker hours after he collapsed and died on stage.
