Is this world's strongest six-year-old?
An Iranian kid, who is also a budding soccer star, stuns everyone with his six-pack abs
If you think Arat Hosseini is just another six-year-old, think twice. The Instagram star, soccer prodigy and expert gymnast has wowed the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, as well as Tennis great Novak Djokovic.
Hosseini, who is of Iranian origin, has become an Internet sensation because of his training routines and six-pack abs. His father, Mohammad, recognised his son's talent and has been nurturing it ever since Arat was a toddler. They moved to the UK so that he could train at the Liverpool Academy.
"After realising my son's talent, at the suggestion of those around me, I started a page on Instagram, which was extraordinarily welcomed not only in Iran, but also abroad," said the proud father to Iran Front Page. Arat has a dedicated following on the social media platform, and has been dubbed the "world's strongest six-year-old". The posts on his page have to do with his fitness and training, most of them raking in over 10 lakh likes.
As Arat started training at a young age, it's normal for him to be in great physical shape. However, his impressive biceps, shoulder muscles and pectorals have taken the Internet by storm. The young boy hopes to play for the football club Barcelona some day. Going by the way he's handled himself so far, one can be sure the bright-eyed boy will get there, too.

Killing it at 103!
A centenarian grandma from Massachusetts celebrated beating the Coronavirus with a chilled beer
A woman from Easton, Jennie Stenja, beat the Coronavirus. What's out of the ordinary about this story is that Stenja is 103 years old and she was at the brink of death owing to her ripe old age, which makes one extra vulnerable to the novel viral disease. She celebrated her recovery in style—by sipping on an ice-cold beer. "She's feisty and tenacious. She is legendary in so many different ways. She speaks her mind and doesn't put up with anything," said Dave Stejna, her doting grandson, when speaking to the New York Post.
The grandmother was admitted to the hospital after her health condition deteriorated. Her family even ended up saying their final goodbyes to her. When she surprised them the next day by pulling through, they treated her to a beer, her favourite beverage. "She put it to her lips and said, 'Ooh, that's cold. It's good when it's cold," added her grandson.
