    Antisa Khvichava still plays backgammon and drinks vodka

    Officials say Antisa Khvichava, who lives in a remote mountain village, will be 130 on July 8.
    The Georgian authorities have petitioned the Guinness Book of Records to include her as the oldest person.
    "Antisa Khvichava was born in the 19th century, and she is amazing," said Giorgi Vashadze, head of Georgia's Civil Registry Agency.
    "We have the necessary documents to prove it."

    The authorities have Ms Khvichava's Soviet-era passport registration, which shows her date of birth, and her pension book issued in the 1960s.
    Although she was born in 1880, the pensioner only retired in 1965.
    She was shown on TV two days ago - on International Women's Day - being congratulated by her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and enjoying a glass of wine.

    The matriarch, a resident of the Tsalenjikhi region, remains in good health, according to reports, and still plays backgammon and drinks vodka.

    If Mrs Khvichava is accepted for the Guinness Book of Records, she will take the title from a 114-year-old who lives in Japan.
