share on:

The world’s tallest man, Sultan Kosen, who stands at 8’3″, has gotten married to Merve Dibo, who stands almost 3 feet shorter.

Turkish farmer Sultan, who has size 28 feet, is almost three feet taller than his blushing bride.

Sultan, who also holds the Guinness World Record for the biggest hands and feet, said he had given up on his quest to find love until he met Merve.

The gentle giant said: “How unfortunate I could not find a suitable girl of my own size. My fiancee is over 1.75 meters tall, but I believe I’ve found the person for me.”

The previous holder of the tallest person honours was China’s Bao Xishun who was ‘only’ 7’9″.

At the Guinness World Records show in 2010, Sultan got to meet his counterpart at the other end of the height scale, the late He Pingping who was just 2’5″.
