The five-year-old with a six pack
A muscle-bound boy has been entered into the Guinness Book of Records after performing an incredible physical stunt.
Romanian Giuliano Stroe, five, has been training since the age of two in Italy - where he lives with his family - and now the hard work has finally paid off.
He was entered into the record books earlier this year after performing some impressive 'hand-walking' skills to a panel of judges and an astonished audience on an Italian TV show .
The exceptional pre-schooler performed the fastest ever 10m hand walk with a weight ball between his legs to the delight of the studio audience.
And he has now become an internet hit after hundreds of thousands of people watched a clip of him performing the stunt on YouTube.
Father Iulian Stroe, 33, said: 'He has been going to the gym with me ever since he was born. I always took him with me when I went training.'
He added there is no danger of the youngster harming himself, saying: 'I have been training hard all my life myself.
'He is never allowed to practice on his own, he is only a child and if he gets tired we go and play.'
