Little Tough Nut

Little tough nut Giuliano Stroe has astonished child health experts in Romania after a YouTube video showed crushing walnuts with a single punch.

Giuliano, eight - billed as the strongest boy in the world by dad Iulian, 34 - is already under investigation by welfare officials over claims that excessive body building training has caused dwarfism in the youngster and his little brother.

In the video - uploaded by the youngster's dad - Giuliano is seen crushing walnuts with his bare hands for his mum and his sister while his dad tells him to ignore the pain.

Others show the youngster doing press-ups on bottles and the brothers tackling press up records.

But child welfare officials are due to report next month over claims that the lads have been crippled by their training.

Cristian Lungu, deputy director of child protection in Olt County - said: "At the end of March we will receive results of medical tests. We will see then if the boys are suffering from dwarfism because of the treatment they have received."

But dad Iulian claimed: "He has been going to the gym since he was born. I have trained hard all my life and always take him with me.

"But he is never allowed to practise on his own. He is only a child and if he gets tired we go and play."
