Photo Of The New Oldest Living Person In The World

The new 'oldest living person in world' is a Jamaican who was born just miles from the birthplace of the fastest man on planet, Usain Bolt. Violet Brown - who is 117 years and 36 days old - takes over the title from fellow supercentenarian Emma Morano who has died aged 117 years and 137 days.

Mrs Brown was born on March 10, 1900 when Jamaica was a part of the British Empire, making her the last living former subject of Queen Victoria who died in January 1901.

Recognised by the Guinness Book of Records , Mrs Brown - who still lives in the same house in where she was born - told the Jamaica Observer in an interview last year: “I live by the grace of God and I am proud of my age!”

It also reported last May that her 96-year-old son, Harold Fairweather, is widely believed to be the oldest person with a living parent.
