Free bed for the world's tallest man

The world's tallest man will now be able to sleep with his new wife after a furniture company agreed to design and gift him a tailor-made bed.

Bao Xishun, 56 years old and 7' 9" tall, of Inner Mongolia, China, is to marry 5' 6" Xia Shujuan, who is 29 years old, later this week.

However, the couple feared they would not be able to live together as they couldn't find furniture big enough for their new apartment.

After an exhaustive search and with the help of friends, they finally located a furniture company which agreed to make the couple a whole set of furniture. The same furniture company is also designing and gifting them a special size bed.
