A 10-year-old Indian-origin girl has been crowned Britain's brightest child after she won a popular television quiz competition in the UK.

A 10-year-old Indian-origin girl, Rhea shot ahead in final of 'Child Genius 2016' on Channel 4 with six correct answers and then drew equal on nine points with her opponent Saffy, as they entered the final head-to-head question round.

Rhea, who moved to the UK with her family from the US six years ago and now lives in west London, correctly spelled the word 'eleemosynary', meaning relating to charity, to claim the title at the end of four weeks of tough question rounds. "It's meant getting up early, going to sleep late, studying. It just feels really, really great," Rhea said after her win.

The quiz show is hosted by Richard Osman, who described this year's show as "the greatest final in the history of Child Genius".
