A five-year-old boy from Klang, Selangor, has gained entry into the Malaysia Book of Records (MBR) for being the youngest person to solve the Rubik’s Cube.

Thashan Dubashan deftly twisted and turned the 3x3 cube to complete it in two minutes, after exploring the puzzle for just eight days. The Rubik’s Cube is a 3D combination puzzle created by Hungarian sculptor and professor of architecture Erno Rubik in 1974.
