A schoolboy who ranks a whopping 6ft 6in is believed to be the world’s tallest eight-year-old at — twice the size of varied of his classmates.
Karan Singh, from Meerut in India, has been a platter confidentially breaker all his life, entering the Guinness Book of Records as both the heaviest and steepest baby at birth.
Now his Dad Sanjay, 41, hopes his son’s amazing height desire be recognised again.
“When Karan was born, he weighed 7.8 kg and was ended 63 cm in length. So that got him into the record books instantly.

Karan is not the tallest in his family and seems to owe his extraordinary height to mum Shweatlana, 33, who was honoured India’s tallest woman with a towering height of 7ft 2in.
Shweatlana, 33, is a basketball player and has represented India in numerous public and international sports events.
Although it’s not clear what has caused their tall height, there is the possibility that both mum and son have an excess of the development hormone.
Sanjay said: “We take Karan to an endocrinologist regularly. Until now, the studies have not shown any problems and everything is normal. Karan has a good inner strength and has no internal problems.

He said: “After settle perfect my homework, I play with my friends and then I go play basketball with my watch over. She started teaching me since I was five years old and I want to play basketball congenial my mother. But I also like science a lot.”
The family fascinates a lot of attention when they step out together, but say their main quandary is getting clothes and shoes in their enormous sizes.
Shweatlana contemplated: “When Karan was born, he didn’t fit into regular baby clobbers. We had to get clothes for a six month old baby for him.
“At the age of three, clothes for a 10-year- old would fit him. Now, his shoe value is already 12 and sometimes we don’t get that in the markets and have to get them beat a hasty retreated.”

Mum and son have the same shoe size and often wear each other’s, and Karan’s vestments are often especially made for him.
