A 111-year-old retired teacher from Japan has been recognised as the world’s oldest living man.

Sakari Momoi received a certificate from Guinness World Records after the death of  Alexander Imich of New York. Imich died in April at the age of 111 years, 164 days.

Momoi was born Feb. 5, 1903, in Fukushima. He later moved to the city of Saitama, north of Tokyo, and served as a high school principal there until retirement.

Momoi enjoys reading books, has five children and currently lives at a nursing home in Tokyo.

Currently the world’s oldest living person is also Japanese: Misao Okawa, a 116-year-old woman from Osaka.
