At 112, Masazo Nonaka is world's oldest living man

Guinness World Records is now investigating possible contenders for the title of oldest living person as no one has been recognised since Violet Brown from Jamaica died in July 2017, aged 117. He even celebrated his win with a cake, saying "yum", according to a report by the Guinness World Records.

A 112-year-old man from Japan's Hokkaido, Masazo Nonaka has been certified as world's oldest man by Guinness World Records on Tuesday. Today, he is precisely 112 years and 260 days old.

Masazo Nonaka, born on July 25, 1905, took the title after Francisco Nunez Olivera of Spain died this year at the aged 113, Guinness World Records said. In 1931, Nonaka married Hatsuno with whom he has five children.

Nonaka puts his extraordinary longevity down to spending lots of time in hot springs and eating candies, although his family said it can be explained by the fact that he lives his life in a way that doesn't cause stress.

The super-centenarian spent the early days of his retirement sumo-wrestling, reading newspapers, and eating all kinds of candies.

It took the Guinness World Records senior consultant Robert Young an extensive research process to confirm that Nonaka is indeed the "World's Oldest Man".

His granddaughter told Agence France-Presse (AFP) that, although he uses a wheelchair to move around, his general condition is good. Nonaka also spends his time watching TV - sumo wrestling in particular and reading newspapers.
