The world's oldest person Misao Okawa, a mother of three, grandmother of four and great-grandmother of six, turned 117 on Thursday in western Japan.

Okawa, who came into the world five years before the Wright brothers achieved the first powered human flight, celebrated her birthday a day early, surrounded by family.
