A 72-year-old Nepalese man who is about the size of a toddler on Sunday became the worlds shortest person ever recorded.
A doctor and Guinness World Records official measured Chandra Bahadur Dangi to confirm his height of 21.5 (1ft 9.5in).
Guinness official Craig Glenday presented Dangi with two certificates for being the worlds shortest living man and the worlds shortest person recorded in Guinness 57-year history. I am very happy. Now I want to travel across Nepal and to foreign countries, Dangi told reporters.
Dangi takes the shortest man record from Junrey Balawing of the Philippines,who is 23.5 inches tall.
