Toddler who can count in seven languages becomes Britain’s youngest Mensa membe

A three-year-old who can read and count in seven languages has become Britain’s youngest Mensa member.

Teddy Hobbs managed to gain entry to the exclusive organisation for the intellectual ‘elite’ aged just three years and nine months.

The child prodigy from Portishead, Somerset, can already count to 100 in six non-native languages, including Mandarin, Welsh, French, Spanish and German.
