Hats off to Bob

Britain’s Bob Weighton becomes oldest man in the world.

Bob Weighton
Bob was born in 1908.

Reacting to the news, Bob, a former teacher who still lives in his own flat, said:


Well, I don’t really feel satisfied, because it means someone else has died. I just accept it as a fact, it’s not something I ever intended, wanted or worked for, but it’s just one of those facts of life. You might find it amazing, but it’s just one of those things.
