Alexander Imich who was a retired chemist and parapsychologist has passed away in New York aged 111, which made him the oldest man in the world. It was confirmed by his niece that he died in his Manhattan home on Sunday morning.

Alexander was born in Poland in 1903 when Poland was part of Russia. He left in 1939 with his wife after the Nazis invaded Russia. The pair eventually moved to the US in 1951. His wife passed away in 1986.

The oldest man in the world is now thought to be a man living in Japan, Sakari Momoi, who is also 111 years old. The oldest woman in the world is Misao Okawa, who is 116 and also lives in Japan.

There is some serious coffin-dodging going on.
