An original Picasso drawing worth one million euros has been snapped up by a young art lover in Paris for just 100 euros.

That was the price of his ticket in a unique charity raffle.

Money raised from the sale of 50,000 tickets is to go towards restoring a UNESCO world heritage site in Lebanon.

It is the first time a work of art has been sold this way.

The winner of “Man with Opera Hat” was 25-year-old American Jeffrey Gonano who said he couldn’t believe his luck.
