World’s tallest man & world's shortest man meet "face-to-face" in Istanbul - PHOTOS

16 January 2010 [11:24] - TODAY.AZ
The world’s tallest and shortest men met for the first time in Istanbul for a Guinness World Records event in the city.
Okay, not really "face-to-face", more like "face-to-knee".

Sultan Kösen, who measures 8 feet 1 inch (2.47 meters), and the 2 foot 5 inch Pingping (75 centimeters)  stood side-by-side at a photo-shoot at Forum Istanbul shopping mall on Thursday, Guinness World Records said on its Web site.

Pingping, from China, reached the height of Kosen’s knee. He was shown clutching Kösen’s fore-finger in a make-shift hand-shake in photos published by Guinness.
