This Venezuelan man is almost 113 years young!

Juan Vicente Pérez Mora, who is 112 years and 355 days old as of Tuesday, was just named the oldest living man by Guinness World Records.

"My dad is in very good health," daughter Nelyda Perez, one of his 11 children, told the record-keeping organization. "He does not suffer from any disease that requires medical treatment."

"The whole family is very grateful," she added.

The supercentenarian, who is the ninth of 10 children, was born on May 27, 1909, according to Guinness.

When he was just 5 years old, he began helping his father and brothers harvest sugar cane and coffee — instilling a life-long love for agriculture.
