BREAKING: World’s Oldest Man, Juan Vicente Perez Mora Is Dead [PHOTO]—THE oldest man in the world has died just two months before his 115th birthday.

Juan Vicente Perez Mora managed to survive two World Wars and the gruelling Covid-19 pandemic but tragically “transcended into eternity” last night as tributes flood in for the Venezuelan icon.

The former farmer was crowned the oldest man alive back in May 2022 when the Guinness Book of Records recognised his long-standing triumphs.

He leaves behind a huge family made up of 11 loving kids, 41 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren and 12 great-great-grandchildren.

Freddy Bernal, the governor of his home state of Tachira in Venezuela, confirmed his death.

Mr Bernal took to X to say: “Our dear Juan Vicente Perez Mora, today with deep sadness and pain we say goodbye to you, to that archetype of a man from Tachira, humble, hard-working, peaceful, enthusiastic about family and tradition.

“Together with my wife and children we had the pleasure and the pride of meeting him and sharing with his loved ones.”

His cause of death is currently unknown.

Juan went by the nickname Tio Juan which translates into English as Uncle Juan.
