South Africans were raving about 10-year-old maths prodigy, Sbahle Zwane, last year.

A video shared via social media by a policeman quickly went viral as reported by last year.

In the video and subsequent ones shared, Zwane is tested with a series of complex calculations.

The average human being would require a calculator to solve the formulas but the youngster manually does them within a second or two.

Eyewitness News has now reported that South Africans have got their wish and the social media sensation has now been rewarded for his precocious talent.

In an interview with Radio 702’s Azania Mosaka, it’s been revealed that Zwane has been offered a scholarship at a Curro school in Protea Glen.

Even more good news is that his mother, Mbali Zwane, has been offered a post at the prestigious school as well.

Mbali revealed that she was unable to find employment ever since her son started attending school.

Fergus Sampson, an Operational Manager at Curro Holdings, confirmed that Mbali’s presence and the close proximity of the school to his home, should hopefully help him integrate into his new surroundings.

Sampson said, “It's very clear we have a very special person on our hands here. It is a privilege and a pleasure for us to have him."
