Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

OSLO: The world’s tallest liv­ing man has un­veiled the world’s largest ginger­bread man at an Ikea out­let in Nor­way’s cap­i­tal, Oslo.

The 2.46m-tall Sul­tan Koe­sen of Turkey dis­played the 651kg bis­cuit baked in the tra­di­tional ginger­bread man shape. It beat the pre­vi­ous ginger­bread cookie record of 593kg set in 2006 in Smithville, Texas.

Koe­sen was de­clared the tallest liv­ing man by the Guin­ness Book of World Records in Septem­ber. – Sapa-AP
