World’s tallest man meets shortest woman in Egypt
    2018-January-30  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE world’s shortest woman met the world’s tallest man, who is four times her height, in Egypt on Friday.

Jyoti Amge, who is from India and stands at a wee 0.63 meters tall, holds the Guinness World Record for the shortest living woman who is mobile.

The 25-year-old met the world’s tallest living man, Turkey’s Sultan Kosen, in Egypt’s Giza city on the west bank of the Nile.

Kosen, 36, is 2.51 meters tall.

Jyoti, who lives in Nagpur, India, has a condition called achondroplasia, a form of dwarfism.

The actress has starred in shows like “American Horror Story: Freak Show,” documentary films and Hindi film “Pan Supari.”

Her counterpart on the opposite end of the scale is from Ankara, Turkey.

Sultan was the first man over eight feet (2.43 meters) to be measured by the Guinness World Record in more than 20 years.

He first became the world’s tallest living man in 2009, when he was 2.47 meters tall. He has since grown taller.

His height is caused by a condition known as pituitary gigantism, where the brain produces abnormally large amounts of growth hormone from the pituitary gland.

Sultan has four siblings and the rest of his family are of average heights. He was married in 2013.

Sultan met Jyoti for a photo shoot in front of the Giza pyramids Friday.

They were visiting the country to promote tourism to Egypt.
