London: British citizen John Tinniswood holds the Guinness World Record for the world's oldest living man. The 111-year-old has not held the record for many days. Juan Vincente Pérez Mora, a Venezuelan citizen who previously held the record for being the oldest man, died this week. With this, John Tinniswood, who was the second runner-up, holds the Guinness record.

Born in 1912 in North England, John Tinniswood was 111 years and 222 days old. According to a statement released by Guinness World Records officials, John Tinniswood was awarded the world's oldest man award based on the assessments made by their experts and the findings of a gerontology research team that collects and collates the data of the oldest people in the world.

John Tinniswood, who has previously worked as an accountant and postal service, has retired from work half a century ago and is now in retirement. At the same time, it is natural that many people want to know about his lifestyle and diet, which is the reason for this long life. But when asked directly about this, John Tinniswood's answer was interesting.

He said that longevity is just luck and beyond that there is no big secret to it. There are no special diets or other secrets. Favorite food is fish and chips. Does not smoke and drinks only occasionally. Recreations include reading newspapers and listening to the radio. He added, 'Sometimes you live longer, sometimes you live less, and there's nothing much you can do about it.'

Although John Tinniswood holds the record for the world's oldest man, 117-year-old Spaniard Maria Branias Moreira is the world's oldest living person.
