Meet the Toddler Genius

Meet the toddler genius so clever he can identify every single country in the world AND their flags.

  • Sherwyn Sarabi is just two but knows all about volcanoes, shooting stars and the major organs of the human body
  • The gifted South Yorkshire youngster has been offered a scholarship to a top school - even though he isn't due to start school for another two years
  • The extraordinary two- year-old can identify all 195 independent sovereign states on a map of the world and even match them with their national flags.
  • He can read, use an iPad.
  • He can also read up to 500 words, describe all major body organs and their functions, count to 200, identify shapes and explain volcanoes and shooting stars.
  • Sherwyn, who goes to nursery two afternoons a week, said his first words at ten months and was playing on an iPhone as though he had one for years by 18 months.
  • His abilities have stunned experts, as well as his parents Amanda, 35, and Daroud, 36.
While other toddlers are content to sit in front of the television, Sherwyn Sarabi prefers to search for his favourite shows online.

The talented two-year-old would be a handy guide outside the UN headquarters, pictured, as he can identify the flags of every country in the world.

Sherwyn has shown an interest in astronomy, begging his parents for a telescope, and can name all the countries on Earth, as shown here from space.

Dr Congdon has offered to assess Sherwyn's IQ once he turns three next month, saying: I don't like to see children under three because it is only then that you can conduct a comprehensive assessment.

Sherwyn's parents hope he can start school sooner than his peers to stop him getting bored and he has already been offered a scholarship to a local independent school.
