Times Online- Arpad Busson was 10 minutes late. As the 44-year-old financier (who is also actress Uma Thurman’s boyfriend) hobbled through the door of his Mayfair boardroom, it became apparent why.
“I’ve done my back in,” said Busson, in a hoarse French accent. The injury is an old one acquired on the ski slopes.
Born in France and educated “between France and Switzerland”, Busson skied as soon as he could walk. At the age of 13 he begged his mother to let him go professional — in downhill racing — but she wouldn’t allow it.
