ONE of the world's fattest men has died at the age of 39 – weighing a staggering 64 stone (407 kg).

Ricky Naputi piled on the pounds thanks to a gut-busting diet of 10,000 calories a day.

He grew so fat he was left bedridden in his home on the Pacific island of Guam for FIVE YEARS – being cared for around the clock by his wife Cheryl.

Ricky was offered life-saving surgery and a TV crew from US network TLC who followed him for three years as he battled to lose enough weight to travel to a hospital in the US.

But he ran out of time and died in November 2012 – before the footage of his plight could be aired.

Ricky's story was finally told this week in a moving documentary that charted his weight battle and his touching relationship with Cheryl.
