A retired Chelsea footballer has won £5.5 million (€7.6m) on the Lotto, according to reports.

Terry Bradbury, 75, hit the jackpot in Saturday's draw, according to The Sun.

The ex-midfielder is set to be formally named at a press conference later today.

Bradbury began his career with Chelsea in 1957 and made 29 appearances for the First Division club.

He moved to Southend United in 1962 for a reported £6,000 before going on to play for Leyton Orient.

Bradbury moved to Wrexham in 1967 before joining rivals Chester, and later worked as a player-coach at Weymouth.

At a press conference today Bradbury and his wife confirmed they are buying a villa in Spain with the windfall.

Mrs Bradbury said: "The villa will be a place where our family can always go to for holidays.

"It is wonderful to think that none of our children will have a mortgage or any stress for the rest of their lives.

"This win provides our family with security and this is what pleases Terry and myself more than anything."
