Co-founder of the betting giant, Paddy Power, 90-year-old John Corcoran still holds shares in the entity, which is unrecognisable from its original form. The business, which merged with Betfair in 2016, used to be headed up by Corcoran's son, Breon, who stepped down in 2017. Shares in PPB have fallen by almost 30pc over the last year alone to £61 (€69). Corcoran previously cashed in some shares for 'estate planning' purposes.
