The Boss of Tesla & SpaceX, Mr Elon Musk has now officially been declared as the richest man in the world.
The net worth of Elon Musk currently is around $185billion (£136billion), which is more than the net worth of CEO of Amazon, Jeff Bezos – which is currently around $184billion (£135billion).
This feat makes Elon Musk the richest person on the planet.
While Amazon’s share price has remained steady over the past year, Tesla’s has increased more than nine-fold.
On Wednesday (January 6), Tesla hit a market value of $700bn (£516bn) for the first time – making it worth more than Toyota, Volkswagen, Hyundai, GM, and Ford combined.
In typical Elon Musk fashion, he responded to news of his new title as the richest person in the world with humor.
