Bill Gates topped the list of the world’s richest billionaires for the 17th time in 22 years, it has been revealed.

Though the 60-year-old Microsoft head is 4.2billion dollars poorer than 2015, his net worth of 75billion dollars has put him in the top spot of the spot on Forbes’ World Billionaires list for the third year in a row, after overcoming Mexico’s Carlos Slim Helu in 2014.

Helu came in fourth in Forbes’ 2016 list of 1,810 billionaires, behind Gates, Zara’s Amancio Ortega and business mogul Warren Buffett, respectively.

Others who made the top ten include Amazon’s Jeff Bezos at fifth on the list, Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook at sixth, Oracle’s Larry Ellison at seventh, Michael Bloomberg at eighth, and tied for ninth are David and Charles Koch.
