It’s a rare thing to witness a child figure skating with and adult for a televised event but, thankfully, it happened.

It all took place in Milano.

A grown man took his place next to a young boy on the ice and were they ever a pair to behold.

They skate it out to “Tango Amore”. While there’s no question they both possess undeniable talent, it’s the little boy who’s a magnet for attention.

But what we’re certain of is that this routine is unbelievable. It’s one of those that after watching it, you can’t get it out of your mind.

Alexander lifts his head and it begins.

As soon as Alexander begins to skate his way toward the center of the rink, the audience explodes. He stops with the spotlight on him as everyone continues to cheer.

He’s smartly dressed in black slacks, a long-sleeved black shirt, and a vest with red sparkles. We’re guessing he’s around 10 years old.

The music is his cue.

Once the song starts to play, Alexander raises his arms high. Then, he makes his first turn, which is only the start of an outstanding routine.

It’s easy to see that although young, he’s extremely confident.

He is a thrill to watch.

After making his way around the ice rink, Alexander does a single axle. But then he immediately follows that up with a double-axle spin.

Both are flawless. The crowd goes wild. He’s ‘small yet so mighty.

Their time to shine.

At the end of the performance, the two are in the center of the ice. That’s when Plushenko Evgeni takes Alexander’s hand to let him know he did a fantastic job.
