Usmanov named Britain´s richest man

Arsenal co-owner Alisher Usmanov has been named as the wealthiest man in Britain by The Sunday Times' annual Rich List.
The Russian business magnate, who owns nearly 30 percent of the north London club, replaces Queens Park Rangers stakeholder Lakshmi Mittal at the top of the list, now in its 25th year.

Usmanov has had a stake in Arsenal since 2007 and has repeatedly criticised the team's ambition, particularly under majority shareholder Stan Kroenke.

His total wealth is measured at 13.3 billion pounds, with his business interests ranging from iron ore to internet and mobile phone companies.

Mittal, who was part of the group who took control of QPR in 2007, dropped down to fourth after eight consecutive years at the top of the rankings, but is still worth 10 billion pounds.

One place behind him is Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich, whose personal riches are listed as a total of 9.3 billion pounds.
