World’s Oldest Man Dies Two Months Before His 113th Birthday


Yasutaro Koide, born on March 13, died yesterday at the age of 112. The Japanese who said his secret to a long life was not to smoke, drink or overdo it. Koide worked as a tailor when he was younger and was recognised by the Guinness World Records as the world’s oldest man in August 2015.


The Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare said he died early today, January 19, at a hospital in Nagoya, central Japan, where he had been treated for chronic heart problems.


He is succeeded as the oldest man in Japan by 111-year-old Tokyo native Masamitsu Yoshida. It was not immediately known whether Yoshida is now the oldest male in the world.
According to the Japan’s family registration records, the country has more than 61,000 centenarians. Nearly 90 per cent are women.
