Tokyo: The world`s oldest man, Yasutaro Koide, died on Tuesday at the age of 112 in a hospital in central Japanese city of Nagoya.

The super-centenarian died of heart failure and pneumonia, the sources said.

Koide, a former tailor who was born on March 13, 1903 in Fukui prefecture, northwest of Tokyo, received a certificate from Guinness World Records confirming the achievement after another Japanese man who was just a month older died in July.

Asked about the key to longevity, Koide had reportedly said: “The best thing to do is avoid overwork and live with joy.”

Currently, the world`s oldest person is American Susannah Mushatt Jones who is 116 and was born on July 6, 1899, according to the Guinness World Records website.
