Gates: Buffett is 'unique leader'


Bill Gates says Warren Buffett is his best friend. The two share a fascination with business - and playing bridge. They also happen to be two of the richest people in the world.

Buffett does not share Gates' fascination with computers, but learnt to use one just to be able to play bridge online. According to Gates, Buffett is now quite adept at web-browsing.

Three years ago, Buffett announced he was giving the bulk of his fortune - currently estimated at $40 billion - to charity, with most of it going to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

The Money Programme special 'The World's Greatest Money Maker: Evan Davis meets Warren Buffett', Monday, 26 October, on BBC Two at 2100.
