The tallest athlete ever to play a sport, Suleiman Ali Nashnush was “only” 7ft 10in during his basketball career but after his retirement he continued to grow and became one of only 17 people in recorded history to reach 8 feet. This height was of course due to an abnormal growth disorder and was naturally corrected by an operation post which Nashnush played a small part in the Fellini film Satyricon.
