'Longest living human' says he is ready for death at 145

Mbah Gotho, from Java, has been named as the world's longest lived human at 145 years old

An Indonesian man who claims to be the longest living human in recorded history has described how he “just wants to die”.

Mbah Gotho, from Sragen in central Java, was born on December 31, 1870, according to the date of birth on his identity card.

Now officials at the local record office say they have finally been able to confirm that remarkable date as genuine.
