Sultan Kosen, a 35-year-old from Turkey, who is 8ft 3in tall is the tallest man in the World and the shortest woman of the world is from India. She is a 24 year old Jyoti Amge . She is the shortest woman in the world at just over 2ft tall. The world's tallest man met the world's shortest woman in Egypt for a photo shoot in front of the pyramids.
The two Guinness World Record holders met in Cairo last Friday as part of a new campaign aiming to revive the country's struggling tourism industry. With more than 6ft between them, Kosen and Amge made a striking pair while they posed for photos in front of the Giza Pyramids.
In one snapshot, Kosen and Amge are standing next to each other while waving at the awe-struck tourists who came to see them. Another photo shows Kosen sitting down next to a standing Amge, and despite his significant decrease in height, he is still towering over her.
