TV Win for Kid

AN 11-year-old boy yesterday became the youngest Countdown "octochamp" in 20 years.

The show victory was the eighth in a row for Kai Laddiman, from Broad Oak, East Sussex.

Only Allan Saldanha, who became an octochamp in 1988 at the age of 10, was younger in the show's 26-year history.
