As befits a scion of the wealthy and secretive Louis-Dreyfus family, the Franco-Swiss billionaire businessman Robert Louis-Dreyfus had a wide range of interests and a deserved reputation as a troubleshooter with an uncanny ability to turn companies around. From 1989 to 1993, he served as chief executive officer at Saatchi & Saatchi and restored the fortunes of the advert-ising agency before rescuing the German sporting goods maker Adidas.

They are arguing about cruelty to animals this time: Gwyneth has been pictured wearing fur. But it could just as easily be global warming, or Darfur, or penguins, or handbags.

Love it or loathe it, there's no avoiding sport this summer. From Wimbledon's down-to-the-wire finale, to the vicarious pleasure of Spain's rise to Euro glory, television schedules and water-cooler debates have been dominated by matters sporting. And with the Olympics set to kick off in Beijing in less than a fortnight, there's little chance of any respite.
