DWARF Sam Short grew twice as fast after receiving a breakthrough drug…

Sam Short is getting bigger thanks to a new drug.

DWARF Sam Short grew twice as fast after receiving a breakthrough “fertiliser” drug in a clinical trial.

The boy, nine, is now completing triathlons after his legs grew long enough to reach his bike pedals.

He grew 6cm after a year of daily growth-boosting jabs – double the 3cm gained the previous year.

Sam, from Fulham, West London, has achondroplasia, which is also known as dwarfism.
