Juan shares secret to long life
The world’s oldest man has also shared a secret to a long life. His secret for a long life is to "work hard, rest on holidays, go to bed early, drink a glass of aguardiente (liquor) every day, love God, and always carry him in your heart."
As a man of faith, Juan Vicente prays at least twice a day as part of his daily routine. Juan received the title of world's oldest living man after Spain's Saturnino de la Fuente Garcia passed away on January 18, 2022, at 112 years and 341 days.
