The daughter of Russian oligarch Boris Berezovsky who was found dead at his UK home has paid tribute to her father saying he was "an inspiration" to her and had a "joy for life".
An inquest heard this week that the 67-year-old was found lying on the floor of the bathroom at his home in Ascot, Berkshire, on March 23 with a ligature around his neck and a cause of death was given as "consistent with hanging".
His daughter, Arina Berezovsky, said in a statement released through Thames Valley Police:
I didn't know my dad very well but what I am sure of is that he really loved his family and that he was always happy around his children and grandchildren.
His life was a turbulent roller-coaster with never-ending ordeals, and I admire the way in which he handled them with utter grace, control and most commendably honesty.
Unfortunately, honesty does not 'cut it' in this corrupt world and is often mistaken for being manipulative; which my dad was not.
He had a certain joy for life, which was beautifully refreshing, and never took anything he had for granted.
His all-consuming determination for justice will be an inspiration to me for the rest of my life and I aspire to one day have half the courage he did when standing up for his beliefs; even if he had to stand alone.
My hopes for him now are that he is at peace and that he is happy.

Police are still waiting for toxicology reports and the house where he lived in Ascot remains 'under police control' as searches continue.

Thames Valley Police, who are investigating the death of Russian tycoon Boris Berezovsky, have said they have no evidence of any third party involvement, which suggests they probably think he took his own life.
Yet they say they still want to talk to close friends and they are accutely aware of all the suspicions that have been thrown up as a result of this untimely death.
But it has to be said most friends do seem to think he probably took his own life. They talk about him being a broken man.
