A man changed his name to iPhone seven to win it for free.

The man, who was previously named Olexander Turin, 20, has completely abandoned his birth name and changed it to ‘iPhone Sim Seven’.

The iPhone store in Kiev offered the first five people who changed their names to iPhone 7 a free phone, according to AP.

The new iPhone 7 costs £760 (23,499 HAT) in Ukraine. In some countries the cost of the iPhone varies because of foreign exchange rates and international fees.

Seven's sister said: "it was difficult to accept that and hard to believe it's true.” She added: “Each person in this world is looking for a way to express himself. Why not to do that in this way?"

The 20-year-old was awarded his gift on Friday. He said he would consider changing his name back when he has children.

One man said he would also change his name on Twitter.

Whereas, another man looked into the future.
