By Amechi Idumuebor (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – A grandfather from Romania has been awarded the title of the world’s oldest man – and says that love is the secret to long life.
Dumitru Comanescu, aged 111 years and 203 days old, inherited the title following the death of British man Bob Weighton, who died yesterday aged 112.
The Romanian super-centenarian – someone aged 110 plus – was born on 8 November 1908 in Proviţa de Jos, Drăgăneasa commune, in the county of Prahova.
‘I feel honored and blessed to be, officially, the oldest man in the world and to represent Romania at the highest level! It’s incredible!’ Comanescu, who lives at the Bucharest Center for Seniors, said.
