http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/wor...-become-oldest-living-man-ever-on-record.htmlA Japanese man aged 115 was expected to become the oldest living man ever on record on Thursday.
Jiroemon Kimura, who was born on April 19, 1897 when Queen Victoria was still on the throne, is "particularly fond of red bean cake and rice".
Mr Kimura, who worked as a postal employee, has 14 grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren and 13 great-great-grandchildren. He currently lives with his son's family in Kyotango, near Kyoto.
The previous holder of the title of the world's oldest man ever was Christian Mortensen, a Danish-American, who lived to 115 years 252 days and died in 1998.
Yasushi Nakayama, the mayor of Kyotango, confirmed Mr Kimura's status as the world's current oldest person last week, calling him "the pride of our town".
Last October, Guinness World Records Editor-in-Chief Craig Glenday travelled to Mr Kimura's hometown to hand deliver a copy of the Guinness World Records 2013.
Tevens de oudste mens ter wereld momenteel. Maakt nog beste een fitte indruk voor iemand van die leeftijd als je het filmpje bekijkt op de site van The Telegraph.
