New world's richest man

US investment guru Warren Buffett has ousted his friend and occasional bridge partner Bill Gates as the world's richest man, Forbes magazine says.

The Microsoft co-founder had topped the Forbes business magazine's rich-list for the past 13 years.

Mr Buffett's wealth increased by $10bn (£5bn) last year to $62bn.

Mr Gates's fortune climbed by $2bn during the same period, dragging him down to third on the list with a fortune of $58bn.
