A British man, born in the same year as the sinking of the Titanic, has now become the world’s oldest living man at the remarkable age of 111 years and 224 days.

John Alfred Tinniswood, hailing from England, has been officially recognized by Guinness World Records for this title, succeeding the late Juan Vicente Pérez, who passed away at the age of 114.

Reflecting on his longevity, Tinniswood, a non-smoker who seldom indulges in alcohol and enjoys fish and chips every Friday, attributes it to “just luck.” However, he emphasizes the importance of moderation in life, cautioning against excesses in any aspect.

Born on August 26, 1912, in Liverpool, England, Tinniswood has witnessed significant historical events, including both World Wars, the Great Influenza, and the Covid-19 pandemics. He also holds the record for being the oldest surviving male World War II veteran, having lived through extraordinary times from the year the Titanic sank.

A lifelong supporter of Liverpool football club, Tinniswood has seen all of his club’s league title wins and FA cup victories. Currently residing in a care home in Southport, England, he is cherished by caretakers for his wealth of stories and experiences.

Meanwhile, the world’s oldest living woman, Maria Branyas Morera, aged 117, resides in Spain.
