We don’t mean to exaggerate or anything, but this Thursday will literally go down in the history books (no, really).

Prepare for a collision of record-breaking proportions as the world’s tallest man meets the world’s shortest dude at St Thomas’s Hospital.

Chandra Bahadur Dangi from Nepal (54.6cm), will come face-to-face (or rather, face-to-kneecap) with Turkish farmer Sultan Kosen, who is five times taller at 251cm, at St Thomas’s Hospital. To put that height difference into perspective: it’s 6ft 4ins, the same size as Canadian rap giant Drake.

It’s all to celebrate the weird and wonderful tenth annual Guinness World Records Day.
