US Mega Millions lottery: First winners come forward

The first of the three US Mega Millions lottery winners has come forward to claim a share from last week's $656 million jackpot.

Kansas lottery officials presented a cheque for $218 million to a cardboard figure after the winner asked to remain anonymous.

The two other winning tickets purchased in Illinois and Maryland remain unclaimed.

Kansas Lottery executive director Dennis Wilson said the winner could hardly believe they had won.
