Big Mac inventor dies, aged 98

Michael James Delligatti, the inventor of the Big Mac, has died at the age of 98.

He famously said it took him two years to convince McDonald’s that his creation was a good idea, but then it became one of the brand’s most well-known sandwiches.

The double beef pattie on a hamburger bun was first released onto the market in Pennsylvania, 49 years ago and is still going strong today.
