The world's tallest man met one of the world's smallest men last week as part of an event organized by the Guinness World Records. Adding another superlative to the encounter was its location, Forum Istanbul, Europe's largest mall.

Sultan Kosen, who stands 8 feet 1 inches tall, met He Pingping, the world's smallest mobile man. Pingping measures just 2 feet 5 inches.

Kosen, 27, is from Turkey, and told reporters that he was excited to show Pingping, 21, around Istanbul, Turkey.
