Look at this incredible image of the world's tallest man and shortest man standing next to each other

Today is the 10th annual Guinness World Records Day, and in London, the world's shortest man, Chandra Bahadur Dangi, met his counterpart for the first time in Sultan Kosen, who holds the world record for tallest man. Dangi, 77, hails from Nepal and is just 21.5 inches tall, while Kosen, of Turkey, stands at 8 feet 3 inches.

"To be able to finally meet Chandra after all this time is amazing," Kosen, 31, said. "Even though he is short and I am tall, we have had similar struggles throughout our lives."

The pair then posed for a photo — take a look, below. --Sarah Eberspacher
