Mathu-Andrew Budge from Dartmouth (UK) holds not one, but two record titles, for the Largest hands on a teenager and the Largest feet on a teenager (male).

His mother, Su Budge, applied for the record titles and sure enough her teenage son turned out to have record-breaking hands and feet.


His right hand was 22.5 cm (8.85 in) while his left was 22.2 cm (8.74 in) from the wrist to the tip of the middle finger, when they were measured in London, UK, on 13 February 2018.

His feet also broke the record on the same day, with his left foot measuring 32.95 cm (12.97 in) and right foot measuring 32.85 cm (12.93 in).

Mathu-Andrew wears an impressive UK shoe size of 18, almost double the national average.

He also features everyday challenges with his height, coming in at a towering 209.68 cm (6 ft and 10.5 in).

"The biggest disadvantage of being tall is doors! It’s not fun hitting your head on every door frame you go through."

Another challenge of being tall is finding reasonably priced clothes to fit. 

"After XXL everything just goes berserk," he added.

However, despite the challengers of being a tall teen, Mathu-Andrew can always rely on the on his family, who he described as being "very supportive and very helpful".

And being tall does also have its advantages, as Mathu-Andrew explained: "The biggest advantage of being my height would probably be being able to reach things from the top shelf!"
