Iran's Afshin Esmaeil Ghaderzadeh, who measured 7 centimeters shorter than the previous record holder, has been named the world's tiniest man as of Tuesday, according to Guinness World Records. With a height of 65.24 centimeters, twenty-year-old Afshin Esmaeil Ghaderzadeh is currently the shortest man in the world (2 feet, 1.6 inches).

The previous record holder, 36-year-old Edward "Nino" Hernandez, was almost 7 centimeters (2.7 inches) shorter than him, according to Guinness World Records (Colombia). According to Guinness World Records, Afshin is the fourth-tallest man ever.

The record book states that Mr. Afshin was located in a distant village in Bukan County, West Azerbaijan Province, Iran. He speaks the Farsi dialect and is fluent in Kurdish and Persian.

He started out as a 700 g (1.5 lb) baby and has subsequently increased to about 6.5 kg (14.3 lb).

Unlike the other residents in his neighborhood, Mr. Afshin never led a typical life. His little stature prevented him from attending school, which had a detrimental effect on his education and literacy. His life has been quite challenging.
