The world's tallest man, Sultan Kosen posses with school children in London
Thanks to treatment by researchers at the University of Virginia Medical Centre, the world's tallest man may have reached his peak.
Measuring at 8-feet-3 inches, 29-year-old Sultan Kosen of Turkey is listed in the 2011 Guinness World Records at the tallest living man, reports The Associated Press.
Kosen visited U.Va. in May 2010 for treatment for a disorder called acromegaly, which is usually caused by a tumour in the pituitary gland.
The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that Kosen was placed on a new medication that could potentially help control the production of growth hormone and stop his continued growth.
According to U.Va. officials, doctors in Turkey say Kosen has stopped growing.
