A Brit who was officially the world’s fattest man has died from pneumonia, his family have announced.
Keith Martin, 44, suffered with weight problems for most of his adult life, at one point consuming as much as 20,000 calories a day, nine times more than the recommended amount.
His sister Tina told the Mirror last night of her brother’s passing in March.
‘We’re still grieving. We miss him very much,’ she said.
Mr Martin said his extreme size came form a lifetime of binging of high sugar junk food such as pizzas and fizzy drinks, which he turned to as his comfort food.
At his largest he weighed a whopping 70 stone.
