Boris Berezovsky died by hanging

The Russian tycoon Boris Berezovsky, 67, has been found hanged in a bathroom at his home in Berkshire. Berezovsky amassed a fortune in the 1990s following the privatisation of state assets after the collapse of Soviet communism. He survived numerous assassination attempts, including a bomb that decapitated his chauffeur. The tycoon's wealth is thought to have considerably diminished in recent years, leaving him struggling to pay debts in the wake of costly court cases. In 2011, Mr Berezovsky reportedly lost more than £100m in a divorce settlement. And, last year, he lost a £3bn ($4.7bn) damages claim against Chelsea Football Club owner Roman Abramovich.
