Does anyone know his address hehehe

A German pensioner who won £2 million on the lottery refused the cash because he didn't know what to do with it.
The 70-year-old man from Hameln, Lower Saxony, went to the HQ of the German lottery association in Hanover after finding out about his win and told them he did not want the money.
He reportedly said: "What would I do with so much money? My wife has already passed away, my parents are dead, I have no children and no other relatives. I don't want it."
He said he had only bought the lottery ticket out of a habit because his late wife had been a passionate player.
Lottery officials said they were trying to persuade him to keep the money.
