Sultan Kosen, the world’s tallest man, has been married to Merve Dibo in Turkey.
Kosen stands a mammoth 8’3″ tall. This is 2.51 meters tall and makes him about 70cm taller than his new wife.
He is believed to be one of only 10 people alive to be to over eight feet in height.
Kosen had given up hope finding a wife but regained it when he met Dibo.
Speaking after the wedding he 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.”
Kosen is so tall that his wedding suit and shoes had to be custom made.
His rare condition is caused by the pituitary gigantism, which causes the body to keep producing the growth hormone.
