Which wake turbulence? IB landed at a point where LH was rolling at lets say 50kts.

The only possible case of wake turbulence would be the Iberia aircraft going around on runway heading and not climbing above the wake of the 747.
There’s a rather small chance of this happening, since a twin-engine aircraft is always going to have a lot more power in reserve than a quad.
That being said, the easy solution is for the ATCO to monitor the situation, and if it happens, provide an early turn to avoid the wake. I’m sure this was part of their (backup)plan.
Safe, orderly and expeditious, just the way a runway should be used.
This pthread, though not an official source, gives a layman’s interpretation of the rules used under FAA jurisdiction: https://aviation.stackexchange.com/ques ... ed-to-land

At about 2:51 a.m., the officers with the New College Police Department saw 40-year-old Juan M. driving northbound on U.S. Highway 41 in a white pickup... The officers attempted a traffic stop but were unable to catch up with the vehicle... The 40-year-old man then crashed his pickup at high speed into the main terminal building at Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport... He smashed his 2015 GMC Sierra truck through the baggage carousel area and then into the front of the National Car Rental counter... Jèuan M., driving with a canceled driver’s license, sustained serious injuries in the crash and is being treated at Sarasota Memorial Hospital. It is not known if he was wearing a seat belt...Authorities said he may have been impaired or suffered from a medical incident at the time of the crash. However, police said Monsivis has a history of arrests for drugs, DUI and driving with a suspended license.

Sorry Master I thought you were off today so I took the liberty to bring this one up, on your behalf of course.

In an attempt to make amends for my intrusion in your mastery and to support your relentless efforts in the matter, unfortunately referred to by many as "nit-picking", allow me submit an example that demonstrates to all the importance of correct spelling.
By capitalizing a single letter in the following sentence, the whole meaning is somewhat affected :

I’m helping my uncle Jack off the horse.

;)

Respectfully Yours,

H.A.

A stowaway had a lucky escape at Lagos (Nigeria) last week (27/12/2019). He was running towards the landing gear of an Air Peace 737, about to take off for a domestic flight from Lagos to Owerri, when he was spotted by the pilot of a private jet. Tower then sent airport security to the man, and he was arrested (but by now, he's probably thankfull for that).
(the tweet down below mention "Multara Airport (Afghanistan)", but the aircraft registration matches Air Peace's flight Lagos-Owerri - see press release).
