ISLAMABAD: The world’s tallest and shortest men met for the first time in London to celebrate the 10th annual Guinness World Records Day.
Sultan Kosen, 31, a part-time farmer from Turkey, is eight foot three inches tall while Chandra Bahadur Dangi, 75, from Nepal, measures only 21.5 inches.
Kosen said, “I love London and to be able to finally meet Chandra after all this time is amazing. Even though he is short and I am tall, we have had similar struggles throughout our lives,” Daily Mail reported.
Chandra said, “I’ve always wanted to visit London and the fact I get to meet Sultan makes it special.”
The pair met to mark Guinness World Record’s day as 600,000 people took part in events across the world to try and win the title.
