Warren Buffett no longer is the third-richest person in the world.

Amancio Ortega, the founder of both Zara and Inditex, which owns the Spanish retailer, overtook Buffett as the third-richest person in the world on Tuesday, according to Bloomberg.

On Tuesday, Ortega's net worth rose to $47.4 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, thanks to Inditex's stock price closing at a record high.

But don't feel bad for Buffett. He still is worth $45.4 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index: roughly 567,000 times more than the median American household is worth.
