A PENSIONER from Canillas de Aceituno has won a massive €9 million in the first El Cuponazo draw of the year.

Jose Torres, 81, was revealed as the lucky winner in a statement by mayor of Canillas de Aceituno, Vicente Campos.

The Spaniard – who previously lived in Switzerland and France – said he will give the money to his two sons, one a widower with two children and the other unemployed.

Campos added: “This money solves the lives of children, grandchildren and perhaps also the generation after that. It is great news for this man to be able to leave such wealth to his family.”
