GUINESS WORLD RECORD-7

OLDEST MAN EVER
The greatest age to which any man has ever lived is 120 years 237 days in the case of Shigechiygzumi (Japan) of Isen on Tokunoshima, an island 1,320 km (820 miles) south-west of Tokyo, Japan. He was born at Isen on 29 June 1865 and recorded as a 6-year-old in Japan’s first census in 1871. He died at 12:15 GMT on 21 February 1986 after developing pneumonia.

Centenarians serving beyond their 113th years extremely rare and the present absolute proven limit of human longevity does not yet admit of anyone living to celebrate their 123rd birthday.
