 A boy from Gaza nicknamed 'Spiderman' is now hoping to break the Guinness world records with his bizarre feats of contortion.

Twelve-year-old Mohamad al-Sheikh from Gaza City practices acrobatics everywhere - in his home, in the streets, or at the shopping malls - and he's now hoping to become an international star.

"My talent is flexibility. I discovered it two and a half years ago and I developed it. I participated in Arab's Got Talent show and the audience admired my performance," said al-Sheikh.


"My ambition is to become a famous international star and to break Guinness records," he added.


His mother said she was initially worried about her son's safety when she saw him contort his body.


"I discovered it when he was playing at home. He used to do some movements and I was worried about him because the movements were dangerous, but he looked comfortable and happy while doing them," said Hanan Kuhail.


Lubad said that they had filled in an online application to compete in the Guinness world records, and they now hope to get into the record book for one of the acrobatic movements.
