Chandra Bahadur Dangi (left) and Sultan Kösen (right), the world’s shortest and tallest living men respectively have just met in London, to mark the Guinness World Records 60th anniversary celebrations and Guinness World Record day.

Mr Kösen, 31, from Turkey measures in at 2m 51cm (8ft 3in) while his counterpart Mr Dangi, from Nepal, is just 54.6cm (21.5in).

It has been a real privilege to have taken part in Guinness World Records Day 2014. I love London and to be able to finally meet Chandra after all this time is amazing.

Even though he is short and I am tall, we have had similar struggles throughout our lives and when I look into Chandra’s eyes, I can see he’s a good man.
