TWELVE-YEAR-OLD Rahul from Lon­don has been crowned the win­ner of Chan­nel 4’s Child Ge­nius, al­though many peo­ple are up­set at the way his fa­ther be­haved at the fi­nal.

It was Rahul who won the tro­phy but, min­utes af­ter win­ning, his fa­ther, Mi­nesh, ap­peared to grab the tro­phy him­self and raise it above his head. Mi­nesh was also caught on cam­era laugh­ing and smil­ing when Rahul’s com­peti­tor, Ro­nan, an­swered a ques­tion in­cor­rectly.

So­cial me­dia users were un­happy with Mi­nesh’s be­hav­iour, claim­ing that he was over­step­ping the mark and be­ing a ‘pushy par­ent’. Through­out the com­pe­ti­tion, Mi­nesh showed his com­pet­i­tive streak by telling his son to see the other con­tes­tants as com­peti­tors in­stead of friends.
