74 Boy Hailed As Tallest Teen In WorldDoctors say not done growing
Brandon Marshall has grown an extra five inches in the last year and doctors say he has not reached his final height
A 16-year-old boy who stands seven feet and four inches tall is being hailed as the tallest teenager in the world.
Brandon Marshall has grown an extra five inches in the last year and doctors say he has not reached his final height.
He is believed to be the tallest teen in the world after former record holder Broc Brown, who is 7ft 8ins, turned 20.
Brandon, known to friends as 'Tiny', has just fulfilled his sporting dream by being picked for the Welsh national basketball team.
His mum Lynne Quelch, 49, said: "I can't believe he's still growing. To be honest I don't know what height he is going to reach.
"He does tend to struggle with roofs, ceilings, doorways - just everything normal size people take for granted.
"He has got a super king bed at the moment but we are having an eight foot bed custom built for him.
"It is crazy, walking down the road with Brandon. People stop him, asking for photos with him.
"He is so shy as well bless him. When people notice his height, he says 'oh here we go again, yes I am tall, yes I am Britain's tallest teenager'."
Brandon, of Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, first hit the headlines last year when he measured 6ft 11inches.
But since then he has carried on growing and is showing no signs of stopping.
Medics have carried out a raft of tests on the teenager, but still don't know why he is growing so tall.Read More...
