Venezuelan man, crowned world's oldest, marks 113th birthday Friday

(VOVWORLD) - Venezuelan Juan Vicente Perez Mora, declared the oldest person in the world by Guinness World Records last week, hits 113 years old on Friday.

Mora, who enjoys good health and a cup of strong liquor every day, has 41 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren, and 12 great-great-grandchildren, Guinness said in a press release.

Apart from slightly elevated blood pressure and hearing problems due to his age, Mora is in very good health and does not take medication.

He became the world's oldest person after Saturnino Garcia, who was born in 1909 in Spain, died in January aged 112 years.
