The world’s oldest man has died just over a month after celebrating his 113th birthday.
Francisco Nunez Olivera, who was 10 years old when World War One broke out, died on Monday in the village of Bienvenida in southwestern Spain where he had lived throughout his life.
On Tuesday afternoon, he was set to be buried in Bienvenida.
Born on December 13, 1904, relatives credited his long life to a diet based on vegetables he grew on his own land and a daily glass of red wine.
Every morning for breakfast, he would have sponge cake made with olive oil and a glass of milk, they said.
Spain has one of the highest life expectancies in the world, which doctors often attribute to the country’s Mediterranean diet.
