A 12-year-old Indian-origin boy, believed to be having an IQ higher than Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking, has been crowned as the UK's "Child Genius" in a popular television quiz competition.

The schoolboy, from Barnet, was the last child standing on the Channel 4 show after he swept to a 10-4 victory in a head-to-head final with nine-year-old Ronan.

He clinched the title after answering a question on 19th-century artists William Holman Hunt and John Everett Millais' involvement with the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood.

Both the grand finalists scored 15 in their specialist fields, with Rahul focusing on Edward Jenner's medical innovation and methodology in 18th-century England.

He had impressed audiences and quizmaster Richard Osman in the first round on Monday by answering every question he was asked correctly.

He was cheered on in the tournament by dad Minesh, and IT manager, and his pharmacist mother Komul - with Minesh calling his win a "phenomenal achievement".
