The “world's tallest man,” whose height is measured at 2 meters 51 centimeters, Sultan Kosen is set to marry Merve Dibo of Syrian descent tomorrow in the southern Turkish city of Mardin.
In addition to his height, Kosen also entered the Guinness Book of World Records due to the size of his hands and feet, which are recorded at 27.5 centimeters and 36.5 centimeters respectively.
While preparing for his October 27 wedding, he told an AA correspondent he had been seraching for the love of his life for a long time but had given up hope when an acquaintance introduced him to Dibo, with whom he fell in love.
"Now I will have my own family and private life," he said, adding, “How unfortunate I could not find a suitable girl of my own size. My fiancee is over 1.75 meters tall, but I believe I've found the person for me.”
Kosen's custom-made suit and shoes will be met by Sarar and a German brand through Minister of Interior Muammer Guler.
Noting that various politicians, religious officials and businessmen had been invited to his wedding, Kosen also extended an invitation to President Abdullah Gul and Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan via AA.
Kosen expressed that all he wants now is a car suitable for his size in which he can travel with his bride.
