From overweight cats to drinking inadvisable amounts of beer, on our 60th anniversary we look back the categories Guinness World Records no longer monitors...

#gwr60   #guinnessworldrecords   #banned   #controversy
Since 1955, many Guinness World Records categories have been discontinued for various good reasons. Here are a few highlights.

Introducing Yastaro Koide from Japan, born in 1903. At 112 years and 161 days old, he's now recognised by GWR as the world's oldest living man.
"I think my nature is to consider other people first. We need to be humble to others," said Yastaro, who despite his advanced years is able to walk, uses his own teeth rather than dentures to eat and can read the newspaper without glasses.

#oldest   #japan   #japanese   #guinnessworldrecords   #officiallyamazing  
Guinness World Records is today pleased to confirm that Japan's Yasutaro Koide (Japan) has been officially recognised as the Oldest person living (male) at the impressive age of 112 years and 161 days.
