  • 112-year-old Japanese man Chitetsu Watanabe poses next to calligraphy reading in Japanese 'World Number One' after he was awarded as the world's oldest living male

113-year-old Masajo Nonaka, who in April 2018 was recognized as the oldest living on the planet of men, died in January 2019.

Eleven days after receiving the Guinness World record for being the oldest man alive, Chitetsu Watanabe passed away on February 23, 2020.

A Japanese male who obtained his certificate as the world's oldest guy with a raised fist and significant smiles earlier this month has died at 112.

Watanabe's family didn't immediately respond to calls to their property.

He had lived with his son's family until six years ago when he moved to a retirement facility at the age of 108 following a bout of flu.

Bob Weighton, who was born in Hull on March 29 1908, said his long life was "just one of those things".

After graduating from agricultural school, he began working for a sugar plantation, eventually relocating to Taiwan for work.

Ce qui devait être "une fête du cinéma censée récompenser ses plus grands talents" ressemblera " davantage à un symposium ".

Having spent years of his career in a sugar company, Watanabe had a sweet tooth, which he satisfied with brown sugar and other treats that did not require much chewing, such as custard pudding. The record holder lived there for 18 years before serving in the Japanese military during World War II.

Don't get angry and keep smiling.

It may be mentioned that the oldest woman in the world - who is also a Japanese - has turned 117 years old.

A lover of bonsai, Watanabe grew the small trees and even exhibited them at local museums and art fairs until 2007.

Ms Jiroemon Kimura holds the record for the oldest living person in history.

Mr Weighton was formerly England's oldest man and Britain's joint oldest man until Alfred Smith, from St Madoes, Perthshire, who shared the same birthday, died last summer.
