Translated from Dutch NOS TV:
Spaniard discovers mega-mushroom

Good luck for a Spanish mushroom collector: he found in the woods near Cáceres in western Spain, a fungus with a diameter of not less than 65 centimeters.
Pharmacist Luis Conde found the twelve-kilogram mushroom not far from his home. To local media he said that he had been collecting mushrooms for twenty years, but that he had never seen such a large one.
Conde has the oak bracket exhibited in his pharmacy. Scores of people already have their picture taken there with the natural phenomenon. Chances are that the mushroom will be there for a while more, as it is not suitable for consumption.
