Who is the tallest man alive in the world?


Sultan Kosen, the farmer from Turkey, is the tallest man ever alive today. He holds the Guinness World record for tallest living male at 251 centimeters ( 8 feet ). As well, he is also the owner of the longest arm in the World at 28.5 centimeters from the wrist to the tip of the finger and the second-largest foot in the world.


He got so tall because of gigantism and acromegaly caused by the tumor that affected his pituitary gland. Sultan Kosen was born on 10 December 1982 in a remote village of Mardin, Turkey.
