THE world’s oldest man has died at the age of 112. But he didn’t pass away without leaving his secrets to living a long life.

Japanese man Yasutaro Koide, born on March 13, 1903, died two months short of his 113th birthday.

Koide worked as a tailor when he was younger.

He was recognised by Guinness World Records as the world’s oldest man in August.

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

He also maintained that the secret to living such a long life came down to not smoking, drinking or overdoing it.

In Japan, 111-year-old Tokyo native Masamitsu Yoshida, born on May 30, 1904, succeeds Koide as the oldest man. It was not immediately known whether Yoshida is also the world’s oldest male.

Japan, a rapidly ageing country, has more than 61,000 centenarians, according to the nation’s family registration records. Nearly 90 per cent are women.

The world’s oldest person is an American woman, 116-year-old Susannah Mushatt Jones of Brooklyn, New York.
