A few weeks ago, a virtually unknown mathematician named Yitang Zhang, who obtained his PhD in 1992 and has just one paper since then, proved one of the great results in the history of prime number theory: there are infinitely many pairs of primes differing by at most 70,000,000. The previous bound was infinity.

I will give an overview of the proof suitable for a general mathematical audience.
