Zhao Liang Confirmed World's Tallest Man

The 27-year-old Zhao Liang is 2.46 meters tall -- 10 centimeters taller than Bao Xishun, who is recognized by the Guinness World Records as the world's tallest man. However, Zhao has not been independently measured by the Guinness judges.

Zhao's surgeon, Liu Yuchen with the Tianjin Anjie Hospital, said the Zhao will be able to walk normally two months after the surgery, but advised against participation in basketball exercises.

Zhao received a health checkup in the hospital before the surgery. Doctors measured his height under the media observation.

The doctor Liu said Zhao is in good health. He does not have any health complications related to his height.

More pictures... The tallest man who ever lived was Robert Wadlow at 272 cm.

Does he still grow? It's not even close to Robert Wadlow's 272 cm, who died in 1940.

I couldn't find out if he still grows. Indeed he's nowhere near as tall a Wadlow who was featured on our blog before. But he's the tallest in the world as far as we know, so he will have to do (for now).
