Elon Musk bounced back strongly to become the world's richest man amid a daily gain of $9.81 billion.
This is coming after Jeff Bezos took the position few days ago.
This was made possible by Tesla's stock, which rose by 4.7% on Tuesday, February 23.
Musk's net worth increased by $7.8 billion (R112 billion) and the billionaire businessman is now worth $183.8 billion, while Bezos' nett worth stands at $182.4 billion, Forbes reports.
The net worth of the Tesla boss has grown exponentially in recent times due to the increase in his company's stock.
