Guiness-World-Records-Day-Shortest Guinness-World-Records-Day-Shortest

The official Guinness World Record holder for being the world’s shortest man, Chandra Bahadur Dangi met the tallest man alive in London today! The event which brought together the shortest man at 21.5 inch and the tallest man at 8ft 1 inch also celebrated the Guinness World Record Day. Photos of the duo were taken with the Houses of Parliament in the background – the shots look iconic! The day marked the Guinness World Record books 60th anniversary!

The tallest man alive Sultan Kosen from Turkey is also the person with the largest hand in the world. You might not believe it but he’s also a part-time farmer. Sultan previously held the record for the largest feet on a living person! Damn!

Oh how time has flown! I remember being excited and persistently asking my parents to buy those books for me when I was younger!
