The internet is abuzz with a report that the world’s tallest man, Sultan Kösen, has become a Christian and has even become baptised! (see video below)
Sultan Kösen (born 10 December 1982 in Mardin, Turkey) is a Turkish farmer who holds the Guinness World Record for tallest living male at 251 centimetres (8 ft 3 in).
However, this report appears to be false. Rather, it is the tallest man of Peru, Margarito Machahuay Varela, who has gotten baptised (http://www.thetallestman.com/margaritomachahuayvarela.htm).
