A family-of-five have made it into the Guinness Book of World Records as they are confirmed as the tallest family in the world.

 

The Trapps from Esko in Minnesota, US, have a collective average height of 6ft 8.03in and their combined height is the same as the length of half a tennis court.

 

The tallest member of the family is the youngest, 22-year-old Adam Trapp.

 

The basketball player stands at 7ft 3in tall.
