This guy is 21 and speaks 11 languages.
I'm not sure to what level, but he sounds pretty good to me.
Meet Alex.....

I always am a bit dubious clicking on language-learning related content from major news
sources because it's always so exaggerated, but this guy is really impressive. Of
the languages I can judge in (Spanish, French, German, Dutch), I can say that his accent
is quite good in each. He's really lucky to have discovered a passion so young, it seems
to have really helped his accent formation.

I'd love to see a more extemporaneous example of his skills as well. Does anyone know if
he has a website or is active on any language learning forums?

Impressive.
I wouldn't say his accent is good in Russian, though the overall skills are fine.

His Spanish and Catalan skills are good (although we'd need to here properly flowing speech to confirm), but even
though the accent is 'right' it doesn't seem to flow properly? I guess this is more due to do with how short the video
is and the format etc. Hmm... We need to get torbyrne to interview him!

Once again I'm reminded of why I should learn to juggle or something if I want to make a living. So many overachievers out there.

He's excellent, but he's obviously reciting a text he's learned by heart.

In French, he kind of misses "embrouiller".

I can't comment on most of his languages, so I won't, but I am happy to see a video of another English speaker who is learning Afrikaans and I think he speaks it well.
