A retired Chelsea footballer has won £5.5m on the Lotto.

Terry Bradbury (74) used to earn £25 a week as a professional footballer in the 1960s, but he is celebrating becoming an overnight millionaire after he hit the jackpot in Saturday's draw.

The ex-midfielder, from Buxton, Derbyshire, said: "The news really is still sinking in. We still can't quite believe it."

Bradbury and his wife Ann (73) said they were looking forward to spending some of their fortune on their grandchildren.

The couple said they were going to splash out on a villa in Spain - their favourite holiday spot. Bradbury began his career with Chelsea in 1957 and made 29 appearances for the club.
