Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov has given a five-year-old boy a Mercedes after he completed 4,105 push-ups.


Chechnya's leader Ramzan Kadyrov has presented a five-year-old boy with a Mercedes for doing more than 4000 push-ups in one go.

Rakhim Kuriev completed the task in two hours and 26 minutes.

The Chechen Minister of Sport, Musa Khanarikov, believes his achievement is a national record, although it was not recorded by the Russian Book of Records because of "minor issues".

Kadyrov said that the boy will be able to repeat push-ups in the presence of a special commission.

The boy's parents said that he has been involved in sports for several years under the supervision of his father.
