The World's Tallest Man Finally Finds Love

The World's Tallest Man Finally Finds Love
Tue 29-10-2013

World's tallest man, Sultan Kosen, a Turkish farmer, is 2.51 meters tall!

He had reportedly given up on finding true love and a life partner until he met Merve Dibo who is 1.73 meters tall, and stands comparatively small to Sultan.

"Now I will have my own family and private life," said Sultan Kosen, who is engaged to Merve Dibo.

"How unfortunate I could not find a suitable girl of my own size," said Kosen, according to UK newspaper The Daily Mail. "I believe I've found the person for me."

Kosen suffers from pituitary gigantism, which causes the over-production of growth hormone.

Although he continued to grow for some time after doctors removed the tumor, his height has leveled out.

Kosen also holds the Guinness World Record for the size of his 27.5cm hands.
