Sultan Kosen, who stands 8 feet, 1 inch tall, is officially the world’s tallest man according to the Guinness Book of World Records. Kosen welcomed China’s He Pingping, the world’s shortest man, to Turkey.
Twenty-one-year old Pingping stands at only 2 feet, 5 inches.
“I had a hard time seeing him. There is a big altitude difference,” Kosen said, reported Sky News .
The two met at the opening of a Guinness World Records road show.
Kosen suffers from pituitary gigantism and holds the records for the largest hands and feet. Pingping was born with a condition called primordial dwarfism.
The event was part of the Guinness World Records live show, which allows the general public to try and make it into the record books.
