World’s tallest man Sultan Kosen weds in Turkey

The World’s tallest man, 2.51 metres Turkish national, Sultan Kosen has finally found a bride for himself. He married a Syrian woman he called the “love of my life”, though he towers over his 1.75-metre bride. Turkey’s official Anatolia news agency reported that the marriage took place in the south western Mardin province.

The 31-year-old groom told that it was the happiest moment in his life while his 20-year-old bride Mervi Dibo, who hails from the Syrian town of Hasaka hoped that the happiness will be long-lasting. The groom’s black suit was custom made, requiring six metres of fabric.

Born into a farming family in southeastern Turkey, Kosen won global fame in September 2009 when Guinness World Records declared him the tallest man in the world. He was then 2.47 meters tall. His growth has resulted from a tumor affecting his pituitary gland.

American doctors treated Kosen’s tumor in August 2010 in Virgina with a precisely targeted shot of extremely high frequency gamma rays, using Gamma Knife. The doctors said last year that Kosen has overcome acromegaly, a rare hormonal disorder that caused him to keep growing well into adulthood.
