20-Year-Old Iranian Is Officially The Guinness World Records Shortest Man On Earth

Afshin Esmaeil Ghaderzade from Iran has earned the title of the World’s Shortest Man after visiting Guinness World Records Offices in Dubai, at only 2 feet, 1.6 inches tall – he is 20 years.

The record-keeping organization says they tripled-checked their measurements to officially named Afshin the shortest man on planet earth.

“Just thinking about being part of the Guinness World Records family is like a dream,” Afshin said in a statement. “I struggle to believe it sometimes.”

“It is like you wake up the next day and the entire world knows who you are. That’s magical,” he added.

He has faced a lot of challenges like schooling (he stopped) and living a normal life, he just recently learned how to write his name and he enjoys watching cartoons like Tom and Jerry, and football, which he says “are heavy to use for a long time.”

“Continuing treatment and my son’s physical weakness are the main reasons he stopped studying,” said Esmaeil Ghaderzade.
