Sultan Kösen

Sultan Kösen (born 10 December 1982 in Mardin) is a Turkish man who holds the Guinness World Record for tallest living male at 251 centimetres in 2009. Kösen’s growth resulted from the condition acromegaly. He describes the advantages of being tall as being able to see a great distance and being able to help his family with domestic tasks like changing light bulbs and hanging curtains. He lists disadvantages as not being able to find clothes for his legs measuring 126 centimetres and for his arms with a sleeve length measuring 97 centimetres or shoes that fit, as well as finding it difficult to fit into an average-sized car.
