#1. Amancio Ortega Gaona – Deportivo La Coruna – £48 billion

Ortega is reclusive and the first picture of him ever published was in 1999. He owns a clothing empire which includes the firm Zara and has since purchased his hometown club of Deportivo La Coruna. The Spaniard is worth £48 billion and is currently second richest person on the planet behind Bill Gates.
