SATURDAY Vanguard, FEBRUARY 10, 2018—31 08116759759 Actress blackmailed with topless photograph bravely hits back The worlds tallest man and shortest woman have met in Egypt for an incredible photoshoot. And the difference between them is just astonishing as in one photo Amge looks to be the same size as Kosen's foot. According to the Guinness World Records, Sultan Kosen, 35, from Turkey is the tallest man on the planet measuring a massive 8ft 1in. And Jyoti Amge, 24, from India, has been named the The idea of private and intimate photos being shared online is something that makes people feel sick to their stomachs. The photos are usually made for one set of eyes only, and they can ruin lives if they are shared or leaked. Most people would do pretty much anything to stop them getting out. But when actress and singer Ninel Conde found herself it that position, she wasn’t having any of it. Ninel, who stars in soap operas in Mexico, was contacted by an anonymous blackmailer who asked for money in exchange for not sharing the photo online. He send the photo and a message which said: "Hey, Ninel, how much for not 'World's smallest woman' meets 'world's tallest man' for incredible photoshoot in Egypt shortest woman at just over 2ft tall. They both won their records in 2011. The pair posed for photographs in front of the Pyramids after being invited by the Egyptian Tourism Promotion Board. And they can be seen putting their differences aside as they pose side by side with big smiles on their faces. Kosen, 35, was the first person to be measured by the record organisation in over 20 years - and only 10 people in history have ever uploading your picture?" But she decided to take a stand. Instead of meeting their demands, the 47-year-old, who has also appeared in the Mexican version of Celebrity Big Brother , star decided to do something very brave. She decided to share the photograph herself before he got the chance. Alongside the picture she wrote a message to her 1.67 million followers. She said: "Say NO to blackmail. "Here I post this before those who want to keep on earning money with the pic of a public person. "There is nothing bad in the picture, done as a reference for my nutritionist. "Here I post it first!" reached 8ft or more, Guinness World Records says. He also holds the record for the biggest hands. Speaking at the time his entry was announced he said: "I never imagined I would be in the book, I dreamed about it, but it was still a huge surprise." His towering height is caused by a condition called pituitary gigantism - a result of an overproduction of growth hormone. Weight off her stomach A WOMAN who had a giant tumour weighing more than five stone removed from her ovaries in a life-saving operation has said she feels “born again.” Costa Rican Sonia Lopez, 57, spoke of her joy at being rid of the enormous growth - likened to the weight a woman would carry if she were pregnant with 11 children. Five surgeons removed the 5.35 stone tumour, which had a circumference of nearly five-and-ahalf feet, in a two-and-a-half hour op at Hospital Mexico near the Costa Rican capital San Jose. Surgeon Pablo Sibaja said: “We see three or four giant tumours every year but never something this big. “This is the largest we know about in Mesoamerica. “In the Guinness Book of Records the heaviest on record is 30kg (4.72 stone) and this one was 34kg (5.35 stone).” Sonia was warned she should have the tumour removed when it was a lot smaller, but put the op off for eight years for “personal reasons”. By the time she went into the operating theatre on Monday the tumour took up 80 per cent of her abdomen and according to Mr Sibaja, was putting organs including her intestines, liver and diaphragm at risk and causing her breathing problems. Mrs Lopez, who lives in the town of Tibas, north of the capital, was also warned she could suffer a heart attack at any time because of the extra pressure it was putting on the organ. She is understood to have sought medical attention last week after suffering breathing difficulties - prompting medics to advise an immediate op when they discovered the tumour had grown out of control. Mr Sibaja told a press conference: “This tumour grew in such a disordered and rapid fashion in such a short space of time that we had to act quickly. Mrs Lopez, who weighed nearly 20 stone before surgery and is now down to 14 stone, added: “I was very tired and felt very ill beforehand. “From how I felt before to the way I feel now, it’s like a journey from the sun to the Earth. I feel like I’ve been born again.” The tumour was so large experts were not able to take a CAT scan or clearly-defined X- rays when the patient was admitted to hospital last Thursday. They asked for blood donors over the weekend to have stocks on hand before the operation on Monday. Tests will now take place on the tumour to confirm it is not malignant.
