London, May 1 (ANI): The ‘world’s tallest man’ has yet to decide if he would like the Guinness Book of Records to officially enter his name in their records.

Zhao Liang, 27, who is from China, is four inches taller than the current holder of the title, 2.36-metre herdsman Bao Xishun, and he needs two beds to rest his 8ft, 1in frame, reports the Telegraph.

As he recuperates in hospital on a makeshift iron bed in the northern city of Tianjin after an operation on his foot, he seems almost bored with his fame.

The hospital was forced to put together two standard-sized iron beds to accommodate the giant from central Henan province whose parents are of average height, but he still has trouble fitting his large frame onto the narrow mattresses.

His shoulders, hands, legs and feet are all oversized, and he finds it difficult to find clothes and shoes to fit. (ANI)
