World's fattest man Keith Martin dies, at age 44

The fattest man in the world, Keith Martin, 44 who once weighed 70 stone (444.521 Kg) is dead.
Prior to his death, he had weight-loss surgery - had three quarters of his stomach removed, and subsequently lost half of his body weight.

However, he died of pneumonia eight months after the surgery.
Before the surgery, Martin was consuming 20,000 calories a day – 10 times what is recommended for adults.
According to reports, “he had six-egg fry-ups for breakfast then pizzas, kebabs, Chinese takeaways and Big Macs for lunch and dinner, all washed down with six pints of coffee and two litres of fizzy drinks.” There was once a period when he didn’t leave his UK home for 10 years because he was unable to walk. So sad, Weight-loss surgery could not save Londoner Keith Martin, 44, who died from pneumonia following a lengthy battle with his weight .
