The tallest man living is Sultan Kösen (Turkey, b.10 December 1982) who measured 251 cm (8 ft 3 in) in Ankara, Turkey, on 08 February 2011.



the shortest and the tallest
Sultan is one of five siblings, with three brothers and one sister,. The rest of his family, including his mum and dad, are all 'normal' sized.

Because of his extreme height he was never able to finish school but works occasionally as a farmer to support his family.

He describes one of the advantages of being tall as being able to help out his mum out with jobs such as changing a broken light bulb and hanging curtains.

Disadvantages to his height he lists include not being able to find clothes or shoes that fit or finding it extremely hard to fit into a regular size car.

Like every young man in their twenties, Sultan enjoys listening to music, playing computer games and watching movies.
