The world's tallest man has become the world's tallest dad. Bao Xishun, who stands at 7ft 9ins tall, became a father last month. The first pictures of the proud dad cradling baby Tianyou - a normal 22 inches in length - were released today by The Sun.
A moving story indeed. But not as moving, perhaps, as his famous dolphin rescue back in 2006. Lucky for the aquarium, whose vets have only arms of average length, Mr Bao was on hand to remove some plastic that was stuck deep down in this poor creature's stomach.
