Misao Okawa was born 1898

The world’s oldest woman, Misao Okawa turned 116 yesterday and still looks like she ain’t going anywhere… yet! According to reports, she has never undergone plastic surgery too!

The recognized Guinness World Records holder celebrated her yet another record-breaking birthday at a nursing home in Osaka, Japan amidst close family and friends.

She is classed as a 'supercentarian' after making it past 110 years old. And she has previously said she believes her long life is down to eating sushi, getting eight hours' sleep at night and relaxing.

Born in 1898, she married in 1919 but was widowed in 1931 when her husband died and is now a mum of three, grandma of four and great-gran of six.

She officially became the world's oldest person back in 2013 after the last one died.

Should we say we want her to live longer than Methuselah?
