111-Year-Old Japanese Recognised As World's Oldest Man [Photo]

A 111-year-old retired Japanese educator has been recognized as the world’s oldest living man.

Sakari Momoi received a certificate from Guinness World Records on Wednesday. He succeeds Alexander Imich of New York, who died in June at the age of 111 years, 164 days.

Momoi was born Feb. 5, 1903, in Fukushima prefecture, where he became a teacher.

Asked how he felt about the record at a televised ceremony, Momoi stood up from his wheelchair, pushed his back upright and said he wants to live longer.

“Say, another two years, ” he said.

He has five children and lives at a nursing home in Tokyo.
