Musk - the richest man on the planet


Elon Musk has become the world's richest person, as his net worth crossed $185bn (£136bn). He takes the top spot from Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, who had held it since 2017 who also saw his fortunes rise over the past year.

Musk's electric car company Tesla has surged in value this year, and hit a market value of $700bn (£516bn) for the first time on Wednesday. That makes the car company worth more than Toyota, Volkswagen, Hyundai, GM and Ford combined.
