An aspiring model believed to be "one of the world's tallest women" has opened up about her condition. Elisane Silva, 26,  started to notice she was much taller than her classmates and even her family at the age of 10. At that time, she was already 5ft 9in despite being a child. Now, she stands at 6ft 8in. Her mum Ana Maria Ramos is just 5ft 4in and her dad Luiz Jorge is 5ft 7in so they didn't think it was down to genes.

Now she's known unofficially as "Brazil's tallest woman" In 2015, the model married Francin...
