Chandra Bahadur Dangi, the world's shortest man according to Guinness World Records, has died at the age of 75.

A native of Nepal, Dangi had been suffering from pneumonia and was being treated, but left to make an appearance in American Samoa. Unfortunately, his condition worsened and he was rushed to a nearby hospital.

The world record holder expressed his sentiments for his title, explaining that he has had "a lifelong dream to travel." Dangi continued in an interview with The Telegraph last year and said, "It makes me extremely proud to represent Nepal all around the world. I'm extremely humbled by the support I receive."

It was around the time of the interview that he also met another fellow record holder in London: the world's tallest man, Sultan Kösen from Turkey.
