A Japanese woman, known to be the world's oldest person, died at the age of 119, reported news platforms quoting local officials on Monday.

Kane Tanaka was reportedly born on January 2, 1903, in the southwestern Fukuoka region of Japan.

She became the oldest living person in January 2019 at the age of 116 years and 28 days.

She is also the second oldest person ever recorded, behind only Jeanne Calment who lived to the age of 122.

Tanaka was said to be in relatively good health until recently and was living at a nursing home, where she enjoyed board games, solving maths problems, soda and chocolate.

Her daily routine included waking up at 6 am, and afternoons spent studying mathematics and practising calligraphy.
