Meet Sherwyn, the four-year-old who has the same IQ as Einstein

A very clever four-year-old is so brainy that he's become the youngest member of an exclusive genius society. What's more, this group only has 85 members across the world!

Super smart Sherwyn Sarabi has an IQ of 160 – the same as Albert Einstein's. But, it could even be higher, as tests are unable to measure an IQ that's bigger than 160.

The brain box boy has been a part of Mensa since the tender age of three, but has now joined the elite HELLIQ - a much more advanced organisation, which has just 85 members worldwide.

Entry requirements to this clever club are fairly demanding. Members need to perform in the top 0.003 per cent of the population to qualify.

Pile of books

Sherwyn, from Barnsley, South Yorkshire, started school at just three years old. Already, he has read an impressive 1,032 books, and he even knows the entire periodic table of elements.

The talented tot was able to identify every country on the globe at the age of two.

His proud mum Amanda, 37, was quoted in the Daily Express talking about his achievements: "He keeps on getting even higher recognition for his abilities. He still keeps giving us a shock from time to time."

But she said that he likes to do normal kid stuff too, adding: "He plays with toys, plays out and likes being with other children. The only thing he doesn't do is watch television."

So move over Einstein, there's a new genius in town!
