Shortest man in the world

Junrey Balawing of Philippines, who is just 22 inches high, is the world's shortest man.

The 17-year-old, who is tinier than a one-year-old, has taken the title by smashing five inches off the previous record.Balawing has not grown since his first birthday, struggles to walk and cannot stand up for himself. “If I were the smallest man in the world, it would be very cool,” the tabloid quoted Balawing, as saying.

The previous titleholder is Nepal’s Khagendra Thapa Magar, who is 26.4 inches tall.
