Most of his friends find it a challenge to count to 10 and are more interested in chewing their books than actually reading them – and that’s why British tot Isaiah Gyamfi is so extraordinary.

At age two he can read, write and even solve maths problems that might have adults reaching for their calculators.

He can speak English, French, Italian and Spanish as well as Twi and Yoruba – two indigenous African languages – and is now also teaching himself Japanese. It took him only 24 hours to learn how to count to 40 in the language simply by watching a YouTube video.
