You won’t think of a six-year-old boy when someone claims that muscles know no age. Here’s an Iranian boy who trained from a very young age.
Arat Hosseini has a spectacular muscled physique because of his football and gymnastics skills. The 6-year-old boy has 4.1 million followers On Instagram. He has a place at Liverpool FC Academy too.
Arat impresses his fans with his superb skills, fit body, and gymnastic videos and he is already a celebrity.
As he has toned biceps and six-packs which are rare for such a young age, his dad Mohammad Hosseini shared his photos on Instagram.
‘After realizing my son’s talents, at the suggestion of those around me, I opened a page on Instagram, which was extraordinarily welcomed not only in Iran but also abroad.’
When his videos scaling walls at home at age 3 and 4 were shared on social media, he initially gathered international attention.
He has earned the title of “World’s Strongest Kid” with his toned, muscular body.
The boy was born in Iran and the family immigrated to England in 2019 after a lot of efforts.
He currently lives in Liverpool, and trains with the Liverpool FC’s Academy.
His father added:
“Arat wants to be the best player in the world. At the same time, we’ll provide him with the best education and training and will take concrete steps in that direction.”
A clip of him playing football went viral, and many fans though that Arat for a girl with his long hair.
The boy dons a Real Madrid shirt, dribbling a football with incredible mastery in the video.
He was trained since a toddler by his father and Arat started gymnastics at nine months old.
His family allowed him to train for about 20mins within 24hrs when he was one. He mastered numerous complicated athletic feats and gymnastic poses over time.
“When Arat was a little boy he was constantly moving and was always active. He started doing gymnastics even before I brought him to a small club. He was very enthusiastic. He was five at that time and I encouraged him and sought better opportunities for him. He’s been always passionate about sports.
I talk to Arat about the positive responses we get to his videos, and I use that to motivate him to achieve his goals. However, at the same time, it’s very important to protect children from the downsides of social media. After all, he’s still a child who is growing up and learning as education is very important for us.”
The boy has been praised by Barcelona’s Lionel Messi and Ronaldo. He wants to become an Olympic champion and to play for Spanish super-club Barcelona FC.
He has reportedly drawn interest from Arsenal, Manchester United and Barcelona since he started training with Liverpool’s academy.
Well done boy!
