World’s shortest man and longest-legged woman meet

THE world’s shortest man might used to people standing over him but it went to a new extreme when he met the longest-legged woman.

The 74cm tall He Pingping stood comfortably between the 132cm legs of Svetlana Pankratova on the steps of London’s Trafalgar Square yesterday.

Ms Pankratova said she was bemused to find a fully grown man who was only about the height of her thigh.

“I heard he was going to be the shortest man, but I didn’t realise he was going to be that small,”  Ms Pankratova told UK tabloid The Sun.

“He seems very happy, he smiles and laughs a lot.”

Mr Pingping, 20, suffers from primordial dwarfism and was no bigger than his father’s palm when he was born.

He was flown to Britain from his home in inner Mongolia where he runs a restaraunt.

Ms Pankratova, who stands at 1.96m, is a 36-year-old Russian real estate agent who lives in  in Spain.

The pair were brought together to promote the 2009 edition of the Guinness World Records book, which is launched today.
