Is He the Tallest Man?

A man who says he's 7ft 9in is claiming to be the world's largest living man.

Hussain Bisad is from Somalia in East Africa but is living in London.

The 27-year-old has size 26 feet and is still growing. Hussain is now taller than a phone box but Bisad now has to prove that he measures up.

Officially, the current record holder is 7ft 8in Tunisian Radhouane Charbib. Reports that I found on the Internet say that Leonid Stadnik of the Ukraine is also the official tallest living man. Xi Shun of China also claims to have beaten Radhouane as the world's tallest living man.

And Guinness World Records says Bisad will have to be measured four times over two days to see if he's taller than Radhouane.

Doctors say he could be suffering from a rare and dangerous condition which makes people keep growing after they should have stopped.

The world's largest ever man was American Robert Wadlow, who died in 1940, at 8ft 11ins.
