It's always nice to get a little treat when you're feeling unwell so we imagine one man was left feeling much better when he won £4.6m on a scratch card sent in a "get well soon" card!

Joseph Amorese was recovering from a hernia op last month when his dad sent him the card to cheer him up.

And tucked inside the card, was a $25 New York lottery ticket, which, when scratched off, revealed the 46-year-old had won a whopping $7million!

The chap, based in Easton, Pennsylvaia, immediately sent a snap of the ticket to his dad, who confirmed the win.

A thrilled Joseph then rang his wife to tell her the good news.

He was quoted on CBS New York recalling the moment: "I said, 'Honey, I think we won $7,000,000'. And there was silence on the other end for a long time. She was too stunned to talk."

The couple plan to invest their winnings and also go on a second honeymoon, having got hitched just ten months ago.

Joseph added: "I don't expect [my life] to change a whole lot… I'm going to go to work every day. My wife's gonna go to work."

That should make you think twice about getting grapes for poorly people!
