Sherwyn Sarabi, two, is being hailed as the world's cleverest toddler.

The gifted little boy from Royston, South Yorks, can already identify all the countries of the world, can read and use an iPad, all before his third birthday in September.

He said his first words at just 10 months, and can now count to 200, explain volcanoes and shooting stars, and describe all major body organs and their functions.

He could also name all the 2D and 3D shapes at 18 months old.

Impressed? Well, doctors and child psychologists are, they have been left amazed by his advanced knowledge.

Sherwyn's mother, former schoolteacher Amanda Sarabi, 35, says: "At first we just thought it was normal behaviour, then one day when we were in the GP's office, he was looking at a map on the wall and started pointing out countries he recognised.

"The doctor was amazed and said he'd never seen anything like it. We've taken him to see a couple of psychologists who have both said he is gifted."

Sherwyn attends nursery during the day, and loves searching YouTube for his favourite children's TV programmes at home, which of course he does independently...
