Mike Tyson is still boxing royalty - but he’s not rolling in the cash anymore. Having last fought in 2005, the 53-year-old has suffered major money issues. Once worth in excess of £233m, it’s now thought he’s now down to his last £3m. After he hung up his gloves Tyson’s spendthrift attitude led to bankruptcy in 2003.

For Chadha’s family, that photograph was symbolic not just of past glories from the land of their forefathers, but of the deeply complex shared history between two nations – Britain and India - that had brought them as immigrants to this country. “As soon as you mention the word ‘Empire’, people … [Read more...] about Gurinder Chadha: ‘People get defensive about the British Empire but it’s our shared history’
