A 16 YEAR-old Japanese teenager won the Rubik’s Cube World Championships in Budapest, Hungary by taking less than 13 seconds to finish the puzzle.

Yu Nakajima, competed against 300 contenders from 33 countries to take home 5,000 euros after winning the main event of the three-day tournament.

The Rubik cube was invented by the Hungarian architect Erno Rubik in Hungary in 1974 and more than 300 million cubes have been sold since.

Erno Rubik said: “I’m glad the cube is reaching new generations, who face it with fresh wonder, curiosity and enthusiasm.”
