Koli solved the Rubik’s cube in 17 seconds while holding the cube over his head, leaving the master-blaster impressed.
In the video Tendulkar can be seen handing over the puzzle cube to Koli. The boy takes a few seconds to memorise how the cube had been puzzled and then goes ahead to solve it.

The video has over 2 million views on Instagram, which it garnered in less than a day.
At the 2019 VJTI Mumbai Cube Open, Koli clinched a Guiness World Record for the ‘fastest time taken to solve a rotating puzzle cube using feet.’ He achieved this record by solving the puzzle in 15.56 seconds.
