A 70-year-old man from Nushki, Quetta in Pakistan claims to have had 54 children over the course of his life.

Abdul Majeed Mengal, who has worked as a truck driver all his life, says he has had a total of six wives, with two having died.

He told a local media outlet that he had so many children because in his youth, he had so much energy that he "had to be intimate daily."
