Flashing the world's oldest smile to the camera while taking bites of the cake offered to him on the occasion, Masazo Nonaka celebrated 112 years.

The world's oldest man is now a Japanese lumberjack who was born during the Theodore Roosevelt administration, having taken the title from a 113-year-old Spaniard who died earlier this year, Reuters is reporting.

On April 10, the man turned exactly 112 years and 259 days.
