Florida woman, 84, wins record $590m US lottery

An 84-year-old woman from Florida has been identified as the winner of the largest unshared jackpot in US history.

Gloria Mackenzie has chosen an immediate lump-sum payment of $370m, rather than receiving her full winnings of $590m spread over 30 years.

The $370m is further reduced to about $278m after taxes.
