Misao Okawa, a Japanese woman who was credited to be the world's oldest person, has died at the age of 117.
She celebrated her 117th birthday just weeks ago, on 5th March. Japanese media said she died of old age in a nursing home in the western Japanese city of Osaka.
Okawa was officially recognised by the Guinness World Records as the oldest person alive two years ago when Jiroemon Kimura, also from Japan, died in June 2013 at age 116 years, 54 days.
The title of the oldest person now goes to Gertrude Weave of the United States who will turn 117 on 4th July this year, Japanese media reported.
Born the daughter of a fabric merchant in Osaka in 1898, on the same day as Chinese revolutionary leader Zhou Enlai, Okawa married in 1919 and had three children, four grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
Chandra Dangi, who is 21.5 inches tall, with Sultan Kosen, who is 8 feet 3 inches tall, met today to celebrate the 10th annual Guinness World Records Day.
