World's tallest meets world's smallest

The world's tallest and smallest men have met in China.

Bao Xishun, 56, from Inner Mongolia, is the world's tallest man and measures 2.36 metres.

He towers over tiny He Pingping, who stands at a mere 72 centimetres.

On Thursday, Bao married a woman two-thirds his size and almost half his age.

They were legally married in March, but also wanted to have an authentic Mongolian ceremony.

The event was sponsored by at least 15 companies hoping to cash in on his fame.

Bao Xishun, a 2.36-metre herdsman from China's vast Inner Mongolia region, was carried to his wedding on the back of a mobile yurt pulled by camels at the Genghis Khan holiday resort on the grasslands near Erdos city.

Hundreds of people, some travelling for hours, turned up to see him wed saleswoman Xia Shujuan, a mere 1.68 metres tall and just 29 years old.

Bao was confirmed as the world's tallest living man by Guinness World Records in 2006.
