Japan's 112-year-old Chitetsu Watanabe has been crowned the world's oldest male.

 

Watanabe was officially given the title at a nursing home in Niigata where he currently resides.

 

Watanabe, who was born on Mar 5, 1907 in Niigata, north of Tokyo, was officially given the title at his nursing home in the city, Guinness World Records said Wednesday (Feb 12).



 

Watanabe, who is married with five children, said the secret to longevity is to "not get angry and keep a smile on your face".

 

The previous record-holder, Masazo Nonaka, also Japanese, died last month at 112 years and 266 days.

 

The oldest living person is also Japanese, Kane Tanaka, a 117-year-old woman.

 

Japan has one of the world's highest life expectancies and has been home to several people recognised as among the oldest humans to have ever lived.

 

The oldest verified person ever- Jeanne Louise Calment of France- died in 1997 at the age of 122, according to Guinness.
