Hampshire’s Bob Weighton set to be named world’s oldest man

Bob Weighton, who was born on 29 March 1908, is expected to be named as the new record-holder following the death of a 112-year-old in Japan.

Chitetsu Watanabe died on Sunday just days after being awarded a Guinness World Records certificate.

Mr Weighton, from Alton, said: “I don’t really feel satisfied because it means someone else has died.”
