Mexican First Lady Angelica Rivera has returned to the $7m (€6.1m) mansion she bought from a firm that had won lucrative contracts with the administration of President Enrique Pena Nieto.

Rivera said late last year that she was buying the house from the company on monthly payments with money she earned as an actress.

The company held the title to the mansion until it was paid off. Rivera said last year she would sell off her rights to the property.

The company agreed to return about $875,000 (€770,000) that she had already made in payments on the mansion.
