At 8’9″, Sultan Kösen, from Turkey, is the tallest man in the world. At 21 and a half inches, Chandra Bahadur Dangi, from Nepal, is the shortest. Today, the two met for the first time — in London, for the 10th annual Guinness World Records Day.
And it was magical. (Or, we assume it was magical.)
Kosen is 31-years-old and works as a farmer. Dangi, meanwhile, is 74 and has a job making placemats and head straps for villagers.
“Even though he is short and I am tall, we have had similar struggles throughout our lives,” Kosen, a 31-year-old farmer, told AFP. “And when I look into Chandra’s eyes I can see he is a good man.”
