Death of the man with the world’s longest noise

Guinness World Records is saddened to learn that Mehmet Özyürek, the proud owner of the world’s longest nose has died at the age of 75 in his hometown in Turkey.

He was well known and loved for his zest for life, and often spoke of how he was blessed to have a record-breaking nose.

He was awarded the title of longest nose on a living person (male) three times.

First in 2001 on Guinness World Records: Primetime in Los Angeles, again in 2010 on the set of Lo Show dei Record in Italy and one last time in 2021.

The record breaker fell ill and suffered a heart attack before he was due to undergo surgery.

Doctors intervened but tragically, were unable to save him.

“I sincerely thank the people of Artvin and their fans. We have pain. My father was very kind-hearted, he tried not to offend anyone. My father was not only at peace with his nose, he was at peace with his life,” his son said.
