It was a meeting of epic proportions. The world’s tallest and shortest men met for the first time this morning to commemorate Guinness
 World Record Day. Sultan Kösen, who is 8ft 1in. tall, and Chandra Dangi, who measures just 21.5ins., posed for photos outside the Houses of Parliament to mark the book’s 60th anniversary.
The two men join hundreds of others who are taking part in a number of record attempts across the world to celebrate the occasion.
The annual broke a record of its own in 2004 when it became the world’s best-selling copyright book. Guinness World Record Day was set up to commemorate the date.
Mr Kösen, 31, from Ankara, Turkey, became the world’s tallest living man in 2009, when he took the title from 63-year-old Xi Shun, from China, who measured 7 ft 8.95 ins. in 2005.
Mr Kösen, a part-time farmer, was the first man over 8ft to be measured by the company in over 20 years – and one of only 10 people on record to break the height barrier.
Mr Kösen also holds the record for largest hands of a living person, each one measuring 11.22 in from the wrist to the tip of the middle finger.
And he previously held the record for largest feet on a living person, with his left foot measuring 1 ft 2 ins and right foot measuring 1 ft 1.98 ins.
