RICHARD BRANSON: WHO IS THE BRIT BILLIONAIRE?

The British billionaire, 70, is a self-made businessman who launched his company Virgin almost 50 years ago.

He was born in Blackheath, London, in 1950 and started his first venture, Virgin Records, in 1972, which he later sold to EMI in 1992 for £500million.

The dad-of-two has started up some very lucrative companies along the way, including Virgin Atlantic Airways in 1984 and Virgin Trains in 1993.

He launched Virgin Galactic in 2004, with the hope of offering future trips to space. Sir Richard has also created Virgin Media, Virgin Racing and Virgin Comics.

In 2007, he was placed in the Time 100 Most Influential People in the World list.
