The world has just witnessed the photoshoot of the world's tallest man and the world's shortest woman. Recently, the two Guinness World Records holders met in Egypt for a photoshoot and they look incredible together.

Sultan Kosen from Turkey, who stands 8 feet and 9 inches tall, met Jyoti Amge, the world's shortest woman at 62.8 cm or 2 feet and 6 inches. Ms Amge, who belongs to Nagpur, holds a Guinness World Record for being the world's shortest woman. The 25-year-old Ms Amge met 36-years-old Ms Kosen in Egypt's Giza city on the west bank of the Nile.

The photo shoot produced incredible results as the mismatched pair's height difference became even more astonishing in close proximity. 

The pair has been invited by the Egyptian Tourism Promotion Board to visit Cairo's most famous sites, in an attempt to help boost tourism in the country.

Mr Kosen's height is a result of a condition known as pituitary gigantism. He became the world's tallest man in 2009 and remains one of the only 10 people in history to reach 8 feet in height or more.

Meanwhile, Amge won the record after her 18th birthday in 2011. She currently works as an actress, in addition to co-hosting a show called ‘Lo Show Dei Record’, according to the Guinness World Records official website.
