The winner of a £73 million EuroMillions jackpot has come forward to claim their prize, the National Lottery has revealed.
It amounts to the eighth biggest jackpot in UK lottery history, and makes the winner richer than Britain's wealthiest sportsman Lewis Hamilton, who has a personal fortune of £68 million, according to the Sunday Times Rich List.
A ticket bought in Britain matched all the numbers to scoop the prize on Friday and the person that bought it has now contacted lottery operator Camelot to stake their claim.
The prize will be paid out once it has been validated and the ticket-holder will then decide whether or not to go public and share their news.
The winning numbers in Friday's EuroMillions draw were 30, 42, 04, 31 and 38 and the Lucky Star numbers were 11 and 02.
The jackpot sees the ticket-holder pocketing a total of £73,205,659.50.
A National Lottery spokeswoman said: "This is another amazing EuroMillions win for the UK and we're delighted that the lucky ticket-holder has come forward to claim this amazing prize. This massive win ranks eighth biggest on the National Lottery Rich list and is the second EuroMillions jackpot to be won here in the
UK so far this year.
Car mechanic Neil Trotter, from Coulsdon, south London, scooped a staggering £107.9 million in the EuroMillions draw on March 14.
Top of the National Lottery Rich list are Colin and Chris Weir from Largs, Ayrshire, who banked £161 million in July 2011.
