Drawing value jumps to £100m as experts decide it is a da Vinci

A portrait has jumped in value from £10,000 to £100m after art experts decided it was drawn by Leonardo da Vinci.

The artwork was previously attributed to an anonymous German artist, however after a year long study, experts now believe the Nuptial Portrait of a Young Woman was instead drawn by the Renaissance master.

It is thought that the 500-year-old drawing was commissioned by the woman to send to a prospective husband.
