    New Delhi (Sputnik): A video of an Indian youngster performing dozens of somersaults in an open area has left many netizens amazed. Many of them feel he’s what it takes to represent the country as a professional gymnast.

    A 24-second video clip of him shows the youngster within a fraction of second performing dozens of back somersaults, like some sort of a spinning machine. More importantly, he does it without any safety gear or even shoes.

    Such has been the impact of this video clip that it has gone viral, drawing nearly 86,000 views and over 3,700 retweets in less than 24 hours of being posted on 10 September.

    Some netizens have appealed to Indian Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju to nurture the talented boy to represent the country as a professional gymnast and bring laurels to the country.

    ​The video has also sparked a social media debate with many discussing how India has so many talented youngsters in different parts of the country without them being noticed by the authorities.

    Earlier, Jashika Khan and Mohd Eizazuddin, two kids had left Twitter abuzz after their video of impromptu somersaults on way to school went viral on social media. The video was also hailed by Nadia Comaneci, a former gymnast and five-time Olympic gold medalist from Romania.

    Indian Sports Minister Rijiju had also praised the kids and helped them to enroll for full-time training in a gymnastics academy.
