A boy cools off in Pakistan during the heatwave.

Government workers in Pakistan have been told not to wear socks because of a heatwave in the country.

Temperatures in the country have been rising steadily and there is a shortage of power.

Air-conditioners are being turned off to save electricity and office workers are being advised not to wear socks as one way to keep cool.

This boy has gone step further though, he's opted to cool off with a swim!
