London Marathon

Sir Richard Branson joins the London Marathon with butterfly wings, and ran alongside Team Caterpillar, which also included his children Holly and Sam. There were 37,000 runners aiming to complete the 26.2-mile course. The Virgin empire took over sponsorship of the event for the first time.

Sir Richard made it round in five hours, two minutes and 24 seconds while the caterpillar took five hours, 13 minutes and four seconds.

With Virgin and AirAsia both sponsoring F1 teams, the airline tycoons have made a bet where the loser will have to serve on one of the winning team's flights, in their stewardess uniform.

So we'll either see Sir Richard in an AirAsia stewardess uniform, or Dato' Tony Fernandes in a Virgin one.

Fernandes said in a statement AirAsia is applying for Branson's security clearance from Malaysia's Department of Civil Aviation.

Branson's Virgin Group has a 20% stake in AirAsia X.
