 London Resident is World’s Fattest Man

A London resident has bagged the title of the world's fattest man. 42-year-old Keith Martin, who weighs 58 stone or 368.32 kg, has achieved this distinction

Martin took over the "title" after Mexican Manuel Uribe, who is still listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the heaviest man, confirmed that he went on a diet to reduce his weight to a trim 31 stone. Martin requires a constant presence of eight ambulance workers to lift him on to a reinforced vehicle for frequent hospital visits and the total number of health professionals rising to 18 including carers and nurses.

Speaking in a Channel 5 documentary, Martin said that he lost interest in everything except food after the death of his mother when he was aged 16. "My mother died when I was 16 and I didn't care about anything after that and I couldn't care less about what happened to me - I ate anything and everything. I blame myself. It was my fault and I hate what I have done to myself", he said.
