A Turkish woman has been announced as the world’s tallest woman.

This week the Guinness World Records officially named Rumeysa Gelgi the tallest woman alive. She measured in at 215.16cm (7ft 0.7in).

Her height is caused by a medical condition called Weaver syndrome. This is when your body grows very quickly.

Gelgi hopes to inspire others to accept themselves after being named the tallest in the world.

The 24-year-old said: “Every disadvantage can be turned into an advantage for yourself so accept yourself for who you are, be aware of your potential and do your best.”

The tallest man in the world is Turkey’s Sultan Kosen, who was measured at 251cm (8ft 2.8in) in 2018.

The tallest woman to have lived was China’s Zeng Jinlian, who was measured at 246.3cm (8ft 1in) before her death in 1982.
