Winner of record $2bn lottery jackpot in US named

The winner of a record-breaking $2.04 billion (£1.69 billion) lottery prize in the US has been named despite the fact he wants to stay out of the spotlight.

Edwin Castro bought the winning ticket at a Los Angeles convenience store in November in which he matched all five winning numbers and the Powerball number – beating odds of one in 292 million.
