Jiroemon Kimura, of Japan was the oldest human on the planet at 116


"born in the reign of Queen Victoria strongly outnumber him, Mr Kimura, born on April 19, 1897, has one record the girls can't match - not just yet, anyway. At 116, the ''supercentenarian'' is the oldest human on the planet...Mr Kimura has lived in the reigns of four emperors, and through the premierships of 61 Japanese prime ministers, from Matsukata Masayoshi to Shinzo Abe....attributes his long life to eating small portions of food, and admits to spending most of his time ''in bed''.

 Mr. Kimura has recently passed and we send our condolences to his family & friends
