A nine-year-old boy named Zion Harvey has made history after becaming the world’s youngest double hand transplant patient.

The operation was done last year and so far it has proved to be successful.

Zion lost his hands and his feet to a serious infection several years ago.

He has prosthetic legs to help him walk, as well as the hand transplants.

It’s taken him longer to get used to his transplanted hands – but now all he wants to do is play American football!
