Standing at just 2ft 5in high, He Pingping, from China, has been officially named the smallest man in the world.
Svetlana Pankratova, meanwhile, owns the longest legs in the world, which stretch to 132cm.
Mr Pingping barely came up to Ms Pankratova’s knees at a bizarre photoshoot held to mark the launch of the new Guinness Book of World Records.
But the pair seemed rather happy in each other’s company as they posed for photos on Trafalgar Square’s steps in central London.
In January 2007, Mr Pingping was invited to take part on a television programme in Tokyo, and has since become somewhat of an icon.
It is rumoured he is now so protective of his image, he refuses to have his photo taken unless he is paid a substantial fee.
While Ms Pankratova might have the longest legs in the world, she is not the tallest.
Last month, Sandy Allen, at 7ft 7in, recognized as the world’s tallest woman, died aged 53.
In July 2007, Pingping, an internet phenomenon, met with the world’s tallest man Bao Xishun.
Earlier this month, it was revealed the midget who shot to fame as the world’s smallest bodybuilder had been snapped up by a leading US talent agent and was bound for Hollywood.
