A schoolboy who measures a whopping 6ft 6in is believed to be the world’s tallest eight-year-old .
At twice the size of many of his classmates,Karan Singh, from Meerut in India, has been a record breaker all his life, entering the Guinness Book of Records as both the heaviest and tallest baby at birth.
Now his Dad Sanjay, 41, hopes his son’s amazing height will be recognised again.
“When Karan was born he weighed 7.8 kg and was over 63 cm in length. So that got him into the record books instantly.
“Then, when he was five-years-old, he got the record for being the tallest toddler. He is eight now and I want to get him into the Guinness Records again,” said Sanjay whose son is already his height.
His mum Shweatlana, 33, was named India’s tallest woman with a towering height of 7ft 2in.
