With Davos drawing to a close tomorrow there may have been a tinge of sadness for delegates bidding farewell to the snowy Swiss climbs and saying hello to London’s grey skies.

But the mood was lifted by the appearance of football legend and Match of the Day host Gary Lineker – pictured above with Aberdeen Asset Management chief executive Martin Gilbert.
England’s second highest goal scorer of all time was due to appear on a panel with cricketer Sachin Tendulkar and NFL star Joe Montana to discuss issues of leadership and teamwork.
This year’s Davos has seen a bevvy of non-financial stars grace the stage, with Pharrell Williams and Will.I.Am in attendance on the opening day. Although the man who’s taken all the headlines at Davos is another non-financial star....the Duke of York.
