What Happens When The World's Tallest Man And The World's Shortest Woman Hang Out?

Ever wonder what it would look like if the world’s tallest man and world’s smallest woman decided to hang out? Well, January saw the epic meeting of the two and it looks even crazier than you would’ve thought. And we promise - no Photoshop was used in this video!

The world’s tallest man, Sultan Kösen

Born in 1982, Turk Sultan Kösen currently holds the Guinness World Record for tallest living male in the world at an absolutely massive 8 ft 3 in. As if one title wasn’t enough, the Turkish giant also holds the record for world’s largest hands, measuring 28.5 cm. His feet measure nearly 36.5 cm and you know what to say about what having big feet means... big shoes: he wears a size 22. Despite these incredible stats, Sultan is still quite a way off the tallest man to have ever lived - Robert Wadlow - who measured 8 ft 11 in!

Sultan doesn’t let his unconventional stature hinder him in the love department; he’s been married for 5 years now to a Syrian woman named Serve Dibo, who is both 10 years his junior and 76 cm shorter than him. Fair play to him.

The world’s smallest woman, Jyoti Amge

Born in 1993, Jyoti, hailing from Nagpur, India measures a mere 2 ft 1 in, granting her the title of world’s smallest living woman. Much like her Turkish foil, she’s not let a growth abnormality stand in her way – she’s found her footing as an actress, even appearing in the popular series American Horror Story in 2014.
