A Venezuelan woman who threw a mango at the head of the country's president to get his attention (recorded in a video that has gone viral) has been rewarded with the promise of a new home. Marleny Olivo had housing problem and was looking for help, so she tossed a mango at President Nicolas Maduro while he was driving a bus (he's a former bus driver who apparently likes to connect with constituents by getting behind the wheel every now and again). The fruit had her name and phone number written on it asking him to call her. Officials did and notified her that he had agreed with her request for a flat as part of what he called the "Great Housing Mission of Venezuela". The president said he would eat the fruit.

The competition closes on 12th June.
