STANDING at an incredible 8ft 1ins tall, Sultan Kosen can see many things - but he's still searching for the love of his life.

STANDING at an incredible 8ft 1ins tall, Sultan Kosen can see many things - but he's still searching for the love of his life.

Mr Kosen, who has just been unveiled as the world's tallest man, said he wants nothing more than to find a wife.

But the 27-year-old from Turkey, who also boasts the largest hands (27.5cm) and feet (36.5cm) in the world, said his size scares women off and he has yet to even have a girlfriend.

He added: “It was really difficult for me to find a girlfriend before but hopefully now that I'm famous I'll be able to meet lots of girls. I'd like to get married.”

Mr Kosen, who sleeps in a three-metre long bed, has to have two seats on a plane and has all his clothes specially made.

He works as a farmer in his homeland after medical problems ruled out a basketball career.
