    A cleaner dad who lost his job during the Covid pandemic has scooped a massive £43million in Australia’s third biggest ever lottery win.

    The struggling Melbourne cleaner has been working odd jobs to make ends meet.

    “I am so excited. I checked my ticket late last night. I couldn’t sleep after that!” the family man, who wants to remain anonymous, told Australian lottery operator The Lott.

    “I lost my job during one of the many lockdowns here in Melbourne. We had only just bought a home and didn’t see it coming.”

    The Aussie had a one in 134million change of guessing the correct numbers in Thursday night’s division one Powerball draw.
