"The secret to longevity? Because I was lucky" World’s oldest person, John Tinniswood, 111 years old – Segye Ilbo VRESP TODAY

A 111-year-old British man who was recorded as the world’s oldest living man said he lived a long life because he was “lucky” and that he had no special secret.

According to Reuters on the 5th (local time), John Tinniswood, who was born in northern England in 1912 and is currently 111 years and 223 days old, was listed in Guinness World Records (GWR) as the oldest living man.

He inherited this title after Venezuela’s Juan Vicente Pérez Mora passed away at the age of 114 on the 2nd.

When asked about the secret to longevity, Tiniswood answered, “There is nothing a person can do to live a long life or a short life.”

He said he doesn’t have a special diet, but he likes ‘fish and chips’, a British dish with fried fish and French fries, and eats it every Friday.

Tinniswood also said in an interview with the Mirror in 2019, “I think I stayed young by waiting for the next time I would go out to eat fish and chips.”

He reportedly met the late Queen Elizabeth II twice, and received a birthday card from Charles III and his wife on his birthday last year.

He retired from working as an accountant and currently has four grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

The oldest man in history was Japanese Jiroemon Kimura, who lived to 116 years and 54 days.

The oldest living person is Maria Branias Morera (117, female) of Spain.
