Lewis Wing took the Tube challenge which has flummoxed thousands online - the London Metro Memory game.

An eight-year-old Tube superfan smashed the London Metro Memory game in under 90 minutes - missing just six stops out of a possible 581.

Lewis Wing has been a passionate fan of the London Underground since he was a toddler.

He completed a mission to visit all of the stations on the network between the ages of three and six - because he loved it so much.

Two years on the schoolboy is still a fan so he took on the viral hit London Metro Memory game to see how he fared.

Lewis listed 575 out of 581 stations in an hour and 22 minutes - only missing stops on the Overground.

He forgot Bush Hill Park, Silver Street, Rectory Road, Wood Street, Stamford Hill and Highams Park.

Lewis, from East London, said: "The challenge was mostly easy, I just did it line by line. I would have got everything but I don't know the Overground so well so those were the stops I missed.

"I started with the Bakerloo line but the quickest line I did was the DLR. I managed that in two minutes and 21 seconds.

"I had two one-minute breaks but that was it. If I did it again I know I'd get them all now."

Mum Sheina Vasudevan, 48, said: "His dad and I took turns to be sure there was no cheating going on."
