Unrecognized legend 

Celino Villaneuva Jaramillo, believed to be world’s unofficial , has died at 121 in Chile.

He died in a hospital after he had fallen out of bed a week previously and broken three ribs, one of which pierced a lung.

However, Celino Villaneuva Jaramillo was never considered as the world’s official Guinness refused to give him such title due to the lack of official verification of his date of birth because he lost his birth certificate in a fire 22 years ago, when he was 99.

But his state ID, which was hand-delivered by Chile’s justice minister two years ago, listed his birth year as 1896 and ministers said government records showed he was as old as he claimed.

That birth date would have made him nine years older than the world’s official , 112-year-old Masazo Nonaka, from Japan; and four years the senior of the world’s oldest woman, another Japanese national called Nabi Tajima, who is 117.
