He has died away aged 112 (AFP Photo/JAPAN POOL) A Japanese man recently named the world’s oldest living male has died aged 112, a local official said Tuesday. Chitetsu Watanabe, who was born on March 5, 1907, in Niigata, north of Tokyo, died on Sunday at his nursing home in the same prefecture, the official said. The news came less than two weeks after he was officially recognised by Guinness World Records. Watanabe, who had five children, said the secret to longevity was to “not get angry and keep a smile on your face”.

The oldest man in Japan is now Issaku Tomoe, who is 110 years old, according to Jiji Press, although it was not clear if Tomoe holds the title globally. The oldest living person is also Japanese, Kane Tanaka, a 117-year-old woman. Japan has one of the world’s highest life expectancies and has been home to several people recognised as among the oldest humans to have ever lived. They include Jiroemon Kimura, the longest-living man on record, who died soon after his 116th birthday in June 2013. The oldest verified person — Jeanne Louise Calment of France — died in 1997 at the age of 122, according to Guinness.

I just buried my grandma lady two years and she was aged 120. Although, those who could talk of her said she is more than the 120yrs. Another one I saw two days ago Is age 170 in Akwaibom State Come meet my grandma una dey whine There is an older woman in Calabar she's 130 yo He was never the oldest. Unfortunately our useless Population Commission never keeps records. Even the various institutions who should be promoting such are rather used to spread govt lies against opposition. My grand uncle died at the age of 128yrs but govt never promoted such🚶

No birth certificate to show for it. See corona It's a lie he can't be the world oldest man when I just lost a father who's 130 Who told you this man is the oldest in the world,?

Taller than shatta bundle? He cannot be the world oldest man. Those that made the claim should explain how they arrived at that. I said Lai Mohammed isn't representing us well. Where is he now to tell these white people that their oldest man is a baby in Nigeria. I guess Nigeria is no longer part of the world.

World oldest? 😂😂😂 I laugh in swahili Kindly visit a remote community called OKUWA in Odo Otin LGA of osun state, you'll retract this report with so much speed. 112 only. When we still have countless elders of over 120years here in ekiti Aww! Some weeks after getting the Guinness world record! God rest his soul
