The Russian oligarch Boris Berezovsky, found dead at his Berkshire home, became a "broken man" and spoke of killing himself after losing a multibillion-pound legal battle with Chelsea Football Club owner Roman Abramovich, his inquest has heard.
His body was discovered slumped on the floor by his bodyguard at his ex-wife's luxury home in Ascot last March.
His death came months after his case involving billionaire Mr Abramovich ended in defeat - costing him millions of pounds and altering his personality, the hearing was told.
