There may be two and a half feet between him  and his future wife, but world’s tallest man Sultan Kosen is on cloud nine after  meeting the woman of his dreams.

The Turkish farmer – who at 8ft three ins,  dwarfs his 5ft 8 ins fiancee – is set to marry Merve Dibo in a ceremony today.

Kosen has long been searching for a woman to  share his life with, and had reportedly given up hope – until he met Ms  Dibo.

He told an AA reporter: ‘Now I will have my  own family and private life.

‘How unfortunate I could not find a suitable  girl of my own size. My  fiancee is over 1.75 meters tall, but I believe I’ve  found the person  for me.’

Kosen also holds the Guinness World Record  for the size of his 27.5cm hands and feet, which are recorded 36.5 centimetres –  a massive size 28.

His gigantic wedding suit and shoes will be  custom made, and the giant, who has achieved near celebrity status, has invited  a host of politicians to his nuptials in the southern Turkish city of  Mardin.

Kosen said all he wants now is a car big  enough for his size in which he can travel with his bride.

He is one of only ten people ever to top 8  feet and the first in a decade.

He became the world’s tallest man in August  2009, when he shot past China’s Bao Xishun at 7ft 9ins.

Sultan suffers from a rare disorder called  pituitary gigantism, which causes his body to continually produce the growth  hormone.

His condition is believed to have been caused  by a tumour in the pituitary gland.

Doctors thought they had cured him in 2008  when they removed the tumour but he continued to grow by half and inch a  year.

Now medics say he has finally stopped  growing.

Sultan grew normally until he was ten but the  tumour then caused him to develop the medical condition.

When other children were little more than 4  feet, he was already well over 6 feet. His family are all ‘normal’  size.

Sultan last visited the UK two years ago,  when he said: ‘The kids used to tease me and I found that very  difficult.

‘But now I am really proud of being  tall.’

Robert Wadlow from Illinois was the world’s  tallest ever man, reaching 8ft 11.1in.

He died in 1940, aged 22.
