A seven-year-old Penge boy has capped off a remarkable year after being crowned a world champion scrabble player in Dubai.

Joshua Moisey, seven, also made history in July by becoming the youngest person to ever cycle the length of Britain.

He completed the 1000-mile Land’s End to John O' Groats trek with his older brother and dad.

The youngster didn’t rest on his laurels for long, because five months later he is now recognised as the best under-eight scrabble player in the world.

Joshua also shocked his family by finishing second in the under-10 category at the World English Language Scrabble Players Association in Dubai.

"I know how tough he is to play against because I get beat by him all the time," his proud dad, Alvin, laughed to News Shopper.

He added: "I am very pleased, and Joshua is overjoyed. Winning wasn’t a total surprise but being second in the under-10s was really unexpected. We are very happy."

Joshua celebrated his latest achievement by taking his trophy to the top of the Burj Khalifa - the world’s tallest building.

His older brother, Reuben, also impressed by finishing fourth in the under-12 category during the competition from December 13-15.

Asked about what he wanted to be when he grows up, little Joshua was quick to say he wanted to be a cyclist.

Dad Alvin joked that he wouldn’t be opposed to a quieter 2019, but before that his boys will compete at the London Junior Chess Champions at the end of December.

"In theory he should be able to win," Alvin said.

"But all he does now is play scrabble. A year ago, it was all chess. It is about whether he can switch his head around quickly for a new game."

Joshua’s cycling obsession is a family trait.

Mum, dad and sons cycle everywhere because they don’t have a car, and you never know, we may see Joshua ride on the biggest stages of all one day.
