    A clever toddler has astounded experts by being able to name all the countries of the world and identify their flags.

    Sherwyn Sarabi, two, said his first words when he was just ten months old and was able to name all 2D and 3D shapes by the age of 18 months.

    The gifted tot, who goes to nursery during the day, can read, use an iPad and can find and watch his favourite programmes on YouTube all by himself.

    He knows all about volcanoes and shooting stars and can describe all the major body organs and their functions.

    He even asked his parents for a telescope - and tackled the complicated instructions to assemble it himself when he got fed up of waiting for his mum to do it for him.

    Sherwyn's precocious abilities have already led to him being offered a scholarship by a top independent school when the headteacher heard of his talents - even though he isn't due to start school for another two years.

    His parents, from Royston, South Yorkshire, only realised their son was advanced for his age during a visit to their GP.

    Mother Amanda, 35, said: 'At first we just thought it was normal behaviour, then one day when we were at the doctors, he was looking at a map on the wall and started pointing out countries he recognised.

    'The doctor was amazed and said he'd never seen anything like it.
