World Biggest Burger in London set Guinness Record

A host of record breakers including the world's tallest man and the biggest burger ever sold have been unveiled at an event in London.
The burger weighs in at more than 13st and sells for 499 dollars (£302) at Mallie's Sports Grill and Bar in Southgate, Michigan, US, according to the Guinness World Records (GWR).

Restaurant owner Steve Mallie said it took eight hours to bake the bun big enough to hold the 185lb (84kg) burger.
He said: "Being in the Guinness World Records book is the greatest accomplishment we've ever done. I've worked my entire life to build this restaurant and being able to have the notoriety of Guinness makes it just that bit more rewarding."
The burger is baked for 15 hours before it is topped with cheese, lettuce and tomato and wheeled out into the restaurant on a trolley.

Other records include the new holder of the world's tallest man title. Sultan Kosen, 27, is 8ft 1in (246.5cm). Speaking to journalists, he said he hoped his new-found fame would bring him love for the first time.

Turkish Mr Kosen, who also has the largest hands (27.5cm) and feet (36.5cm) on the globe, said his size had put women off and he had never even had a girlfriend. He said: "The first thing I want to do is have a car that I can fit in but more than that I want to get married. Up until now it's been really difficult to find a girlfriend. I've never had one, they were usually scared of me. I'm hoping now I will find one."

One the difficulties of being so tall is getting clothes which fit - Mr Kosen wore a specially-made suit to meet journalists which was one of the first outfits he has owned that is the right size. He also had to have a three-metre long bed made. But his towering height does have its upsides. He said: "The good thing about being so tall is that I can see people from a long distance. The other thing is at home they use my height to change the light bulbs and hang the curtains, things like that."

A smiling Mr Kosen, who used crutches to stand, said he had always dreamed of coming to London and had two seats to himself on the flight over.
