THE world’s tallest teen girl looks like she has a toy boy — but that’s because she’s 6ft 8in. Elisany da Cruz Silva, 17, towers over her 5ft 4in boyfriend as they take a romantic beach stroll. The construction worker said: “My friends say things like, ‘How do you hug her?’. I say, ‘There’s a way of doing everything’.”
Elisany — an inch taller than Stoke City’s Peter Crouch — has a form of gigantism due to a tumour on her pituitary gland.
She grew faster than her seven siblings from the age of 11 and hit 6ft 9in when she was 14. But her sudden growth caused pain in her limbs and joints./secoure www.thesun.co.uk
