divorce came through...
A British man has won £ 2.3 million (NZ$4.9 million) on the lottery, just one day after the ink on his divorce papers dried.
Kevin Halstead spent last Friday boozing with his buddies after the divorce was completed.
The next day he bought a lottery ticket, the Daily Express reported.
The 50-year-old ended up winning half the jackpot, coming away with almost $5 million.
Mr Halstead said he held no ill feelings towards his ex-wife and the two were still good mates.
The couple split up about 13 years ago but weren't divorced until recently.
His ex-wife, 48-year-old Helen, told the Express she was not upset.
Mr Halstead plans to spend the money on a holiday and a pony for his 14-year-old daughter, Jessica.
