This adorable youngster has been dubbed 'Popeye' after a mystery illness left him with huge swollen biceps. Daniel Salvame, 11, noticed swelling on his left upper-arm when he was just four-years-old - and classmates started teasing him. Within a couple of years he had developed an enormous arm resembling that of a fully-grown bodybuilder. Daniel's classmates at his school in Rizal, the Philippines, bullied him over the abnormal appearance but he hit back - telling them that he was like cartoon hero Popeye. The little lad now dreams of being a bodybuilder and martial arts pro so he can prove the bullies wrong.
