“Manneken Pis”, a bronze sculpture of a little boy peeing into a fountain, has stopped his daily routine due to Siberian frosts that have reached the Belgian capital.

­City authorities fear that freezing water could damage the ‘inner mechanisms’ of one of the best-loved symbols of Brussels.

According to weather forecasts, temperatures could drop by minus 10 degrees Celsius within the next couple of days.

But once the temperature rises again, the landmark statue designed back in 1618, is set to resume its peeing duties.
