Meet the smallest man in the world

At just two feet tall, Khagendra Thapa Magar is just four months away from being named the world's smallest man

Excitedly awaiting his 18th birthday in October of this year, Khagendra and his family are in contact with Guinness to take the official crown from 2ft 5in He Ping Ping of China.

Weighing only 10lbs, Khagendra has become something of a celebrity in his native Nepal, where politicians have joined the clamour to see him recognised as the smallest man in the world

Born seventeen years ago in the remote Baglung District 125 miles away from the capital Kathmandu, Khagendra's family have always known he was destined for great things, despite his size.

"He was born weighing only 600 grams (1lb 5oz)," says his mother Dhana Maya Thapa Magar, 33

Although the cause of his size has never been medically confirmed, doctors in Nepal who have examined him believe Khagendra to suffer from a malfunctioning pituitary gland
