Move over, Bao Xishun and Leonid Stadnik (who was stripped of his title) the Guinness Book of World Records has certified that 27-year-old Sultan Kosen from Turkey is the world’s tallest man. Kosen is eight feet and one inch tall! What does Kosen want to do with his new fame?
"The first thing I want to do is have a car that I can fit in, but more than that I want to get married," he said.
"Up until now it's been really difficult to find a girlfriend. I've never had one, they were usually scared of me. I'm hoping now I will find one."
He went on: "Hopefully now that I'm famous I'll be able to meet lots of girls. I'd like to get married."
