The World's oldest Person title remains though in America. Jeralean Talley is with the age of 115 years now the oldest person in the world. She was born on May 23, 1899. She will soon celebrate her 116 birthday. She is one of a fast shrinking group of so called Supercentenarian - people who passed their 110th birthday.
Below is a ABC report about Jeralean Talley last year's birthday.
Mrs. Talley appears in the video as still rather active and fit. Looks like she will be holding the title of World's Oldest Person for a long time.

The number of people born before 1900 will gone quite soon. Jeralean Talley was born in May of 1899, so there are only 7 month left.

American Susannah Mushatt Jones was born on July 6, 1899 and Italian Emma Morano-Martinuzzi was born on November 29, 1899.
