The tallest man and the shortest man in the world met in London to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Guinness World Records book. According to The Telegraph, 31-year old Sultan Kösen from Turkey measures in at 8 feet, 3 inches.

Chandra Bahadur Dangi, the 75-year-old man from Nepal is 1 foot, 7 inches tall. “Even though he is short and I am tall, we have had similar struggles throughout our lives and when I look into Chandra’s eyes, I can see he’s a good man,” said Kösen.

The two took a break to pose for photos together outside the Houses of Parliament, while hundreds of thousands of people from all around the world competed for record titles.
