Alisher Usmanov: Daddy Cool

Hang on... what's going on here, then?

For clarity on this point, we turn to the Telegraph....

The Telegraph - (31 August, 2007): He is married to Irina Viner, one of the leading trainers of Russian rhythmic gymnastics, who has two children from a previous marriage...

These comments only survive as cautionary examples, as this is an area I feel that we can and should avoid.

I'll be deleting any further examples. Sorry to be Mr Stick Up His Butt about it.
