• World’s oldest man dies at 112 in Japan


    TOKYO: The world’s oldest man, Yasutaro Koide, died on Tuesday at the age of 112 in central Japan, a local official said. Koide, born just months before the Wright brothers made their first successful flight, died in hospital in the central Japanese city of Nagoya, where he had lived for many years, said the city official. The super-centenarian, recognized as the world’s oldest male at 112 last year, died of heart failure and pneumonia, the official added. Asked about the key to longevity, Koide had reportedly said: “The best thing to do is avoid overwork and live with joy.” Currently, the world’s oldest person is American Susannah Mushatt Jones who is 116 and was born on July 6, 1899, according to the Guinness World Records website.
