A Yeti popularly referred to as the mountain man is an ape-like creature taller than an average human and very huge.

A schoolboy is claiming to have discovered startling 'proof' of a Yeti - a huge footprint twice the size of a normal man's.

Denis Alexandrov was on a camping trip with pals in Siberia when he set out for a walk in the early morning in the mountainous Shorsky National Park in Kemerovo region.

The 12-year-old then noticed a mark on the floor and took a closer look - and was stunned with what he found.

His dad Andrei, 49, said: "I'm into hunting so I understand a bit about footprints," said Andrei, who claimed he did not believe in Yeti before he witnessed the giant mark in clay.

"We went to the place were the kids saw the footprint, and the only thing I can say was 'I now know it exists.'

"The creature must have been very tall," he told The Siberian Times.

"The edges of the footprint were sharp, which means the creature left the footprint not too long ago."

The Big Foot print resembled a human's, as evident in the picture.
