Anorak imagines this to be a fluctuating fact, the record being challenged by each meal and bowel movement.

Now Mr Uribe tells the world that he has lost 230 kilograms (570 pounds), nearly half his original weight. Mr Uribe has the look of a former EastEnders harpie Jessie Wallace.

“I’m going to throw a big party,” says Uribe. “I’m getting out of my house and going for a walk” in Monterrey, where he lives in northern Mexico.

Now he is less, but he is so much more. On March 9, Uribe will be lifted out of his house on his bed by a special crane and driven around on a flat-bed truck.

“I feel great,” says he. “The doctors say I’m healthier than ever.”

And now he’s “found love” with hairdresser Claudia. Her husband died of a heart attck “brought on by his obesity”. It’s hard not to smile, we know. Here’s the video:
