AMAZON founder Jeff Bezos has become the richest man in history with a personal fortune of an eye-watering £78billion.

A 1.4 per cent rise in Amazon's share price made the New Mexico-born businessman £1billion ($1.4billion ) richer on Monday(Jan.08).

His net worth grew by around £24billion ($32.6billion) in 2017 alone, with the majority of it coming from the 78.9million shares he owns in his company.

53-year-old Bezos was the first person to amass a 12-digit fortune since Microsoft founder Bill Gates, who has given more than £44billion ($60billion) to charity, achieved the feat back in 1999.
