Youngsters get to meet the world's tallest basketball player

Children at Great Sampford Primary school near Saffron Walden in Essex were treated to a rather big surprise today.

Standing 7 feet 7 inches tall, Paul Sturgess is the world's tallest basketball player. He paid the school a visit to show them some skills honed in a career that included playing for the Harlem Globetrotters no less.
