Did world's oldest man receive personalised gifts for 114th?
The world's oldest man is celebrating after reaching yet another birthday – an event for which he may have been given personalised gifts.
Japanese man Jirouemon Kimura was 114 on Tuesday (April 19th) and celebrated with a traditional meal of grilled fish and rice – a dish that is often served on special occasions in his homeland.
"It is a great honour and words alone cannot describe my feelings. I take it as a sign from heaven and am deeply moved," the record holder said.
Mr Kimura took over the title of world's oldest man earlier this month after Walter Breuning of Montana, US passed away.
He currently lives with the widows of his son and grandson following a career in the postal service and has seven children, five of whom are still alive.
Another birthday celebration where personalised gifts could have been exchanged was Hugh Hefner's, following the Playboy mogul's 85th bash in Las Vegas recently.
