Naples - A schoolboy has become a millionaire after winning the lottery jackpot in Italy.
The boy's £27,6-million win came after he went to a local shop during his lunch break to buy a ticket with his pocket money.
News sources say he hit the jackpot on the Italian national Superenalotto after buying his ticket in Frattamaggiore, near Naples.
Under Italian law children are forbidden to gamble - but they are allowed to take part in the national lottery.
Raffaele Umbriano, spokesperson for the lottery competition, confirmed the prize had been won by a schoolboy.
