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.

  2. I like this article so much because its funny and awesome because it tells me what I want to know like how your article said how tall he was and wide. In the movie it was funny because everyone was looking at him when he was walking in public. and how people took pictures of how tall he is. he had too have everything specially made because no clothes could fit him i liked how he said that and he said there was a possibility of me being the tallest man in the world. It also said he had disadvantages like he has too squeeze through the door and going into taxis. He had heaps and heaps of disadvantages. He has to even use crutches to keep him self up.

  3. Hes soooooooooooooooooo TALL It must be awkward being tall because u might have to reach tall things up high and u might need to rebuild a house just for him and ppl might get scared of u

  4. I do not feel sorry for him. he loves his life even tho he is he tallest man alive he still acts like he is a normal person and he Is with a wife so just because he is tall doesn’t mean he’s…
