EuroMillions ticket wins jackpot

Euromillions ticket
Nine European countries participate in the EuroMillions lottery

A EuroMillions ticket holder is believed to have broken the European lottery's record by winning a 126m euros (£110m) jackpot.

The ticket, which had all seven winning numbers, was bought in Spain.

If the ticket belonged to a single person, not a syndicate, it would be the largest EuroMillions win.

The lottery, which takes place every Friday, pools stakes from nine countries. The main jackpot is rolled over if there is no winner.

Tickets are sold in the UK, the Irish Republic, France, Spain, Portugal, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium and Luxembourg.

Winning numbers in this week's EuroMillions draw were 04, 23, 24, 29, 31.

The "Lucky Star" numbers were 08 and 09. The jackpot winner has not been identified.
