John Tinniswood: British great-grandfather becomes world’s oldest living man at 111

Mr Tinniswood, a lifelong Liverpool FC fan, does not smoke and rarely drinks alcohol. His main advice for staying healthy is to practice moderation.

A great-grandfather from Merseyside has become the world’s oldest living man.

John Tinniswood, who is 111 years and 223 days old, says he doesn’t pin his extraordinary longevity down to any particular lifestyle choice or diet but he does eat battered fish and chips every Friday.

The Briton lives in a care home in Southport, where staff call him a “big chatterbox”. He said: “I eat what they give me and so does everybody else. I don’t have a special diet.”

He also said his secret to longevity is “pure luck”, adding: “You either live long or you live short, and you can’t do much about it.” The previous Guinness World Records title-holder was Venezuelan man Juan Vincente Mora, who died this week aged 114. Mr Tinniswood, a lifelong Liverpool FC fan, does not smoke and rarely drinks alcohol. He listens to the radio to keep up with the news, and still manages his own finances. His main advice for staying healthy is to practice moderation. “If you drink too much or you eat too much or you walk too much; if you do too much of anything, you’re going to suffer eventually,” he said.
