Leonid Stadnik, 37, of northwestern Ukraine has been officially declared as the world's tallest man. The former veterinarian, who standing at a towering 8ft 5inches (2.57 metres) in tall, was awarded the Guinness World Record yesterday.

The new record holder was about 20 centimetres taller than China's Bao Xishun, who measured 7 foot 9 inches (2.36 metres tall ). According to the report, a brain operation apparently began his growth spurt at the age of 14 by stimulating his pituitary gland. Link
