 I'm already the fastest boy on Earth - maybe the fastest boy in the universe!

When I first learned to run, I went so fast that my nappy started smoking. I don't know what people thought I had done in there!

My little brother Alfie

Either my stopwatch or my trainers - I can't decide!

That's easy - fast food!

Alfie is really funny, he's always falling over and stuff, but he gets right back up again!
