Jeff Bezos becomes £10bn richer in just one day as Amazon shares surge

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos became $13bn (£10bn) richer in a single day on Monday after shares in his company surged nearly 8%.

Already the world’s richest man by a huge margin, Bezos is now estimated to be worth $189.3bn (£148bn).

His fortune has ballooned $74bn (£58bn) this year alone, according to Bloomberg, with Amazon shares up more than 70% in 2020.

The daily jump in the 56-year-old’s wealth is the biggest ever recorded by Bloomberg’s billionaire tracker.
