THE world’s oldest man has died at his home in Extremadura, a month after celebrating his in 113th birthday.
Francisco Núñez Olivera passed away on 10.30pm on Monday night.
Born on December 13th 1904 in the village of Bienvenida in Badajoz – Francisco – known as Marchena – fathered four children, nine grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.
He became the world’s oldest man in August 2017 on the death of Yisrael Kristal, a holocaust survivor.
“He will be missed by everyone,” said Antonio Carmona, the mayor of Bienvenida.
He fought against the Berbers in Morocco in the 1920s and was a veteran of the Spanish Civil.
His secret to reaching the grand old age of 113 was “to work hard. To not be weak and stay in the house.”
