Photos: The tallest and the shortest man in the world


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.
