Worlds Strongest Boy forced to beg for free car parts for dads old Mercedes

A 17-year-old once labelled the 'World's Strongest Boy' when he was just five-years-old has been reduced to begging followers for car parts on Facebook after his dad's Mercedes banger broke down on the way to a competition.

Romanian Giuliano Stroe became headline news when he became a Guinness World Records holder for the fastest 33-foot hand-walk on record while live on Italian television, with a weighted ball on his leg.

In 2010, he also broke the record for the most 90-degree push-ups.

He did 20, breaking the previous record of 12 live on Romanian TV.

But now, it appears Giuliano may have fallen on hard times, after posting that he was in need of money to buy car parts for his dad's motor.

Earlier this month, his father posted a video apologising to his son for his car “problems” which left the former weigh lifter-turned-boxed unable to compete in a tournament.

And now it seems like the issues are even worse after he was left begging on behalf of his dad for an “EHA Valve” for a Mercedes 300SEL from 1988-1991.

Giuliano wrote: “Have someone one part like this?

“Can give me for free?

“EHA valve for Mercedes 300SE 1989 W126 Benzin.

“I hope this will solve our car problem start. I am happy for a second hand too.

“Really is to expensive for me (sic).

“I will support the cost for delivery – thank you."

He posted the request alongside images of the tiny part on eBay.

It appears to be going for around £117, but is only available in the United States so shipping costs look to be around £80 in total.

The post was met with ridicule, as 21 people used the laughing emoji in response.

The latest round of pleas comes a few days after he was asking fans for cryptocurrency investments.

"Who want help me with some crypto? I need a little help to start this game," he wrote at the end of March, showing the zero balance in his crypto wallet.

One person replied, accusing the young man of "begging".

"Next you’ll be begging for us to send you crypto now to fund 'boxing completions' for your kids lol," wrote Brad Brydges.

A second person added: "He’s in crypto for begging."

A third person responded: "To trade in crypto you need money."

A fourth implored: "Please Stop begging brother."

In 2014, Giuliano's 35-year-old fitness fanatic father Iulian Stroe, had spoken of his determination to make his son famous and put him through a gruelling two-hour regime each morning in Florence, Italy where his family lived.

But Iulian's plans went awry and he was forced back to Romania.
