Yasutaro Koide, a Japanese, aged 112 years, who was officially recognised as the oldest living man by Guinness World Records, is dead.

A report from Tokyo said Koide, who was hospitalised in the central city of Nagoya, died from chronic heart failure. He was born in 1903, the year the Wright Brothers built the first successful aeroplane, and worked as tailor in the western Japanese city of Tsuruga.
