£2 million EACH?! Corona founder left his home town a FORTUNE


In a gesture which has left most of us slackjawed this morning – updated reports confirm we were right to be slackjawed –  the founder of Corona beer has made a millionaire of each and every resident of his small home town in north west Spain.

Antonino Fernández, who passed away at the age of 98 last August, bequeathed a staggering £169 million to the people of Cerezales del Condado.

And as the tiny villages boasts only 80 residents, that's a cool £2 million each.

Clearly flabbergasted by the businessman's gesture, Maximino Sanchez, the owner of a small bar in Antonino's hometown said: "We never had any money before. I don’t know, what we would have done without Antonino."

Antonino, one of 13 children, moved to Mexico in 1949 at the age of 32 where he worked for Grupo Modelo brewery – and ultimately helped to make Corona one of the most popular beers in the world.

Antonino, we salute you.
