Brahim Takioullah places world record for largest feet

Amazing world News : Guinness World Records can today validate that Brahim Takioullah from Morocco at present holds claim to having the world's largest feet. 

The 29 year old, who presently lives in Paris, France has a left foot measuring 1ft 3in (38.1 cm) in length, while his right actions 1ft 2.76 in. 

His massive height also places him as the world's second tallest living man, two inches at the back Sultan Kosen of Turkey who stands at 8ft 3in. Brahim, who grew up in a tiny Moroccan village, had a huge growth burst during his teens which saw him grow three feet in just one year, however, no one thought to examine his unusual size until he was 18. 

"The school doctor noticed that I was this massive size and asked me to get some blood tests. I did that, and I was diagnosed with a very exceptional condition called acromegaly," he explains. 

He contacted Guinness World Records himself to face up for the record, and says he is proud to have it recognized, though daily life is not without its problems. 

He hopes one day to have an especially built car he could drive himself, but for now even getting a pair of shoes stretches his finances, he takes a European size 58, which no shop has ever stocked. 

French doctors are working to decrease Takioullah's brain tumour, and he hopes his newborn fame will help him find the specialist treatment he needs. 

"The record now will be known around the world, and experts somewhere around the planet may be able to help," said Craig Glenday, Editor In Chief of Guinness World Records.
