The world's oldest man has unfortunately died aged 114 near his home in Montana, USA.

Walter Breuning - the oldest man since 2009 - passed away with an anonymous illness. He was awarded the title by the Guinness Book of World Records after Brit Harry Allingham died in July 2009.

Bruening had lived and worked in the Great Falls area of Montana since 1918.

US Senator Max Baucus who honored Breuning on the floor of the US Senate on his 114th birthday, said: "I was honored to know Walter.

"He was a real Montanan: thrifty, healthy, hard-working, and he had true Montana grit. "Walter's reminiscence will remind us to always live each day to the fullest."

Breuning was the sixth man to have reached the age of 114. About 70 women have been recorded as reaching the target.
