Retired Scots couple claim EuroMillions jackpot of £57.9m
They will hold a press conference later, joining a long line of Scottish lottery winners.
A retired couple from Aberdeenshire have claimed a EuroMillions jackpot of £57.9m.
They bought the winning ticket for the July 10 draw, matching all five main numbers and the two Lucky Star numbers to the colossal £57,975,367.70 prize.
The couple, who have not yet been named, will hold a press conference later on Thursday to talk about the experience of winning.
According to the Sunday Times Rich List 2018, they will be richer than World Cup-winning French midfielder, Paul Pogba, worth an estimated £25m, and Belgium's Kevin De Bruyne, worth £16m, put together.
They join a long list of Scottish lottery winners.
Colin and Christine Weir from Largs in North Ayrshire scooped the biggest Scottish win in EuroMillions history, claiming the £161m prize in 2011.
Adrian and Gillian Bayford, from Dundee, were living in Cambridge in 2012 when they found out they had won a £148m Lotto windfall.
David and Carol Martin from the Borders took home a £33m Lotto jackpot in 2016, and most recently, Tommy and Linda Parker from East Lothian claimed a £5m Lotto prize last October.
