Turkish Man, 71, Keeps His Place As World Number One For Having Longest Nose

A Turkish man is celebrating after keeping his place as the world's number one for having the longest nose on the planet.

Mehmet Özyürek’s 3.46 ins hooter was recognized eleven years ago, and he maintains his spot in the record books.

Guinness World Records today posted confirmation that his 2010 entry has officially still not been beaten.

His sniffer is still untouchable, and no living person has taken his title.

They posted the throwback tweet and say the 71-year-old is still number one in the world.

Guinness World Records said: ” #OnThsDay in 2010 Mehmet Özyürek from Turkey was officially confirmed as our record holder for the longest nose on a living person. Mehmet’s magnificent nose measures 8.8 cm (3.46 in) from the bridge to the tip.”

He appeared on the Italian TV show Lo Show dei Record in 2010 to have his nose measured.

He may be the undisputed king of the conker – but the title of the longest nose ever belongs to an Englishman.


According to Weird Historian, he was a member of a “travelling circus”.

Waxworks of his incredible nose can be found in Ripley’s Believe It Or Not Odditoriums around the world.

It’s not just human setting records, of course.
