At only 84 cm tall and not even 9 kg weight, Aditya "Romeo" Dev of India, the world smallest bodybuilder, is causing a huge stir in his hometown and gaining international recognition.

Throngs of people crowd into the local gymnasium on a daily basis to watch him work out.

Using custom-built 1.5 kg dumbbells, Romeo, 19, pumps iron daily to prove that small is beautiful.

While most dwarfs have large heads compared to their bodies, Romeo is perfectly proportioned, and despite his diminutive stature has triceps, biceps, calves and thighs that would make many a full-grown man blush.

In addition to his bodybuilding, Romeo is also training to be a dancer, according to the Telegraph.
