Suparwono, who comes from the village of Tri Tunggal Jaya on the island of Sumatra, was first identified as a world record holder when a relative invited neighbours to take pictures of him.

He lives with his parents and earns money doing odd jobs around the village. He eats almost seven pounds of rice and 15 eggs a day.

“I started to realise my exceptional height when I was 10 years old,” he said. “At that time, I was already the tallest at my school and in my village.”

Suharto said he felt “proud” of his height, but added: “It also gives me problems because I can't live like normal people.”
