The world's tallest teenage girl walks hands in hands with her boyfriend, the picture of young love despite a staggering 1ft 6in height difference.
Elisany da Cruz Silva, 17, measures an unbelievable 6ft 8in tall and has to bend down to plant a kiss on her 5ft 4in lover Francinaldo da Silva Carvalho, 22.
The youngster, from Salinopolis in Brazil, has a form of gigantism because of a tumour on her pituitary gland, which regulates growth. Doctors have since removed the tumour.
'The only thing that really affects us is when we hang out holding hands - it seems like he is my little brother or son.
He added: 'She is a beautiful person. She is tall but she is so pretty, with a beautiful face. I don't mind having a tall girlfriend.
'I feel free and relaxed as a person and don't care what people say.'
Her mother said: 'I want her be like the other girls because I know she feels weird and sometimes wants to be like them.'
