With his feet dangling above the floor and his child's portion of food, it looks like he's having dinner at his grandma's.

In fact Sanele Masilela, 8, is enjoying dinner with his wife, following his marriage to her two weeks ago, and said he is now beginning to feel like a proper husband.

The school boy married Helen Shabangu after his grandfather contacted him from beyond the grave telling him that he needed to wed.

The schoolboy chose family friend and mother-of-five Helen and his family paid £500 for her to be his wife at a £1,000 ceremony in Tshwane, South Africa.

Sanele admitted that since the wedding, he has begun to feel like a married man.

He said:'The day was great and it was exactly what I had imagined it would be like.

'My friends thought it was really funny that I was getting married but I do now feel like a husband.'
