The world’s tallest man is Sultan Kösen, who was born in Turkey in 1982. Kösen’s height was measured at 8 feet 3 inches (2.51 meters) in 2009, making him the tallest man in the world. Kösen’s height is due to a condition known as gigantism, which is caused by an excess of growth hormone in the body.
Kösen’s height began to increase when he was a child, and by the time he was 10 years old, he was already 7 feet tall (2.13 meters). Kösen’s family was initially unaware of his condition and thought that his height was simply due to his large build. However, when Kösen’s height continued to increase, his family began to seek medical help.
Kösen was eventually diagnosed with gigantism and began treatment for the condition. However, due to the late diagnosis, Kösen’s height had already reached 8 feet 3 inches (2.51 meters) by the time he was 27 years old.
Despite his condition, Kösen leads a relatively normal life. He is married and has two children. He is also able to walk and move normally, although he does require special care due to his height.
Kösen’s height makes him the tallest man in the world. He is also the second-tallest person ever, behind Robert Wadlow, who was 8 feet 11 inches (2.72 meters) tall.
