Meet Gaza's Spiderman!

June 06, 2016 08:09 IST

He's not bitten by a spider nor is he auditioning for the next Spiderman movie but 12-year-old Mohamad al-Sheikh who is nicknamed 'Spiderman', hopes to break the Guinness world records with his bizarre feats of contortion.

In war-torn Gaza, he can be seen practising all over the city in shopping malls or at the beaches.

Mohamad had participated in the Arab's Got Talent, which made him famous locally and got him admiration.

Here are some glimpses of Gaza's very own Spidey.
