A boy from Britain is being hailed the tallest teenager in the world.
Brandon Marshall, 16, is seven feet and four inches—and still growing.
His mother, 49-year-old Lynne Quelch, said people stop him for photographs when they walk down the street.
“When people notice his height, he says ‘oh here we go again, yes I am tall, yes I am Britain’s tallest teenager,'” she said.
The teenager said he was a “normal size” until the age of nine.
“I then had a big growth spurt. I was about 6 feet when I was about 13 and I started to grow a lot more by then,” he said. “When I was in year nine I got to 6 feet 7 inches and in year 10 I got to 7 feet.”
