One recent clip shows the couple dancing and kissing in the street with Mrs Marjanovic looking miniature compared to her giant partner.

She said: ‘I have to admit that I like to read comments about the height difference between Boban and me.

‘Some of the comments are so funny they make me laugh with tears in my eyes!

‘Sure, there are also negative comments, but when a person is happy and satisfied with what they have, they don’t pay attention to those kind of comments.’

The couple have been together for more than a decade. They wed three years ago and have two children. 

Mrs Marjanovic says she finds her husband’s hectic schedule more of a challenge than the fact that he towers over her.

She said: ‘At the beginning what bothered me the most was that we couldn’t plan anything because we didn’t know his schedule in advance.

‘In time I developed the ability to predict, so now I know when we can expect a free day.

‘That is something that I am used to now. Birthdays, anniversaries, celebrations generally pass by without Boban.

‘But these are minor things. I put Boban and his needs first, so he is surrounded at home with positive energy and in that way we contribute to his game.’

Marjanovic also represents his national team and was one of the best players in this year’s FIBA EuroBasket where Serbia took second place.
