Max Mosley, the former president of Formula One's governing body FIA, has said his wife intitially thought he had the News of the World edition which claimed he took part in an orgy that had Nazi overtones printed as a joke.
Mosley sued the paper and won. The judge ruled there was no evidence of a Nazi theme so there was no public interest in running the story.
Max Mosley is now taking a case to the Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg to ensure public figures are warned in advance of stories about them.
He spoke to Sarah Montague about what impact the exposure had on his life.
