The recently crowned world's tallest man, Sultan Kosen, meets the man who currently holds the title of the world's smallest man — He Pingping.
The Turkish farm laborer, Kosen, with height 246.5 cm (8 ft 1 in) took over the title from Bao Xishun back in September, beating his Chinese rival by an incredible 10 cm.
The two — Kosen and Pingping — met at a ceremony in Istanbul on Thursday, January 14, to mark the launch of the Guinness World Records live Roadshow.
The tallest man in the world, welcoming the shortest man in the world to his country, said that "I was having hard times to notice him." The 21-year-old 73.66-centimeter (2 ft 5 in) tall, who hails from China, said that he was happy to meet with Kosen.
He Pingping is facing a potential challenge to his title, as his fellow countryman Wu Kang is applying to Guinness World Records, saying is under 68.58 cm (2 ft 3 in).
However, Wu is also considering hormone therapy which could increase his stature.
