A TEENAGER who was born with no hands has become an internet sensation – by playing the piano.
Alexei Romanov, 15, was abandoned by his parents after a birth defect left him with flipper-like hands.
Three years later, his astonishing performances are taking the internet by storm.
The talented teen, from Zelenogorsk in western Russia, was taught to play simple tunes because his adoptive parents thought it might improve his flexibility.
His amazing performance of the Twilight theme, River Flows in You, composed by South Korean pianist Yiruma made him an overnight star across Russia with tens of thousands of social media and online fans.
He also won a place on the Russian talent show Zvezdi iz Zavtra, or Stars of Tomorrow.
Accompanied by a full orchestra, Alexei performed the song on the show to rapturous applause.
