Watch World’s Tallest Man and Shortest Woman Meet For the First Time


While it may sound like a tall tale, it’s actually true; last week, the world’s tallest man met the world’s smallest woman.

Sultan Kösen is a 35-year-old Turkish man who currently holds the Guinness World Record for his height, measuring in at a whopping 8 feet 3 inches.

Jyoti Amge is a 24-year-old Indian woman who also holds a Guinness record – but for the opposite. Amge measures in at just 24.7 inches tall, making her the smallest woman in the world.

The two met at the Great Pyramids of Giza last Friday as a way to bolster the faltering tourist industry in Egypt.

The Egyptian Tourism Promotion Board said that Amge and Kösen would be visiting other famous national sites during their stay in the North African country.
