Antonino Fernandez willed $2m to resident of the Spanish village he grew up in

Antonino Fernández, who died aged 98 in August 2016, left £169m in his will to the 80 residents of his birthplace – the small village of Cerezales del Condado in north west Spain. He left £2m in his will to each resident and basically made them millionaires overnight.

Fernández was a well-known philanthropist who never forgot his motherland and was honoured by the former King of Spain, Juan Carlos, for his charitable deeds, including his work with disabled young people.
