Kieth Martin, the world’s fattest man, has died from pneumonia at the age of 44 in London after a lengthy battle with obesity.

Martin, who was officially registered as the heaviest man in the world, had a two-year battle to lose enough weight in order to have a drastic weight loss surgery.

Martin’s death comes just eight months after he had undergone a successful gastric sleeve which removed three-quarters of his stomach.

“If he had lived he would have lost hundreds of pounds and regained his ability to walk and live a normal life,” said head surgeon Kesava Mannur, who operated on Martin at Homerton Hospital last year.

“I’m a lot more confident than I used to be. I feel a lot happier. In a few months time I want to be up and walking,” a hopeful Martin had said about his surgery.

Martin explained his life in 2012 as being unemployed and spending his days playing video games and watching TV.

He reportedly ate up to 20,000 calories a day from foods such as pizzas and kebabs.
