Hussain Bisad is one of the tallest men in the world, at 2.32 m (7 ft 7 12 in). He has the largest hands of anyone alive: his hands are 10.59 inches or 26.9 cm long. He has size 26 feet and weighs 210 kg (460 lb).[1]

Doctors believe that Bisad is suffering from a condition called pituitary giantism, that makes growth continue after most people stop developing. Expert in abnormal growth Professor Mike Besser, from Bart’s Hospital, Central London, said he probably has a tumour in the pituitary gland behind his eyes.[2]

Hussein Bisad is originally from Somalia, but fled after being shot, and has been granted asylum in Britain, where he now lives.[1]
