World's oldest man revealed as 112-year-old Masazo Nonaka

Masazou Nonaka

Nonaka, who lives in a family-run hot spring inn on the northern island of Hokkaido, was presented with the certificate on Tuesday by the Guinness World Records. The first radio broadcast happened in 1906.

Masazo Nonaka, a 112-year-old Japanese national, has been recognized as the world's oldest living man.

"He needs a wheelchair to move, but he is in good condition".

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.

"He reads newspapers everyday and often soaks in the hot springs", she added.

Even though Nonaka's longevity is an incredible feat, there are several people alive today who are even older - but all of them are women.

But they didn't admit exactly what had happened, with a female doctor allegedly telling her: "A medical mistake took place". She was put on a life support machine after she was flown to Moscow but she suffered multiple organ failure and died.

A 117-year-old Japanese woman, Nabi Tajima, who is now the oldest living person in Japan, is expected to be certified as the world's new oldest person, replacing Violet Moss-Brown of Jamaica, who died in September at the age of 117.

Mr Nonaka has taken the Guinness World Records title as the oldest man on Earth after Spaniard Francisco Nunez Olivera died in February aged 113.

He married Hatsuno in 1931 and the couple had five children, according to Guinness World Records.

The world's oldest living man also likes to spend time with his family, and their two pet cats called Kuro and Haru. While Nonaka believes his longevity is due to his likings to candies and the springs, his daughter thinks it is because he lives life stressless way.

The world's oldest living person in the history of the Guinness Book of Records was French national Jeanne Calment, who died in 1997 at the age of 122.

The country boasts around 68,000 people aged 100 or older, the Japanese government said in 2017.
