Japanese confirmed as world’s oldest living man

oldest living man

HOKKAIDO: Masazo Nonaka from Japan was recognised Tuesday as the world’s oldest man at the ripe old age of 112, as his family revealed his secret: sweets and hot baths.

Nonaka, who was born on July 25, 1905, just months before Albert Einstein published his theory of special relativity, received a certificate from Guinness World Records at home on Japan’s northern island of Hokkaido.

There are around 68,000 people aged 100 or older in the country, the government said last year.
