Nepalese teenager Khagendra Thapa Magar is set to become the world’s shortest man as he celebrates his 18th birthday.

(Mr Magar comes from a remote village in central Nepal, and he’s just under 66cm (2ft 2ins) tall. Up until now he had been the shortest male teenager in the world. He has become a bit of a local celebrity, was invited to meet the prime minister and is a tourism ambassador for the country.)
