A Russian billionaire has appealed to the Court of Appeal against an order that the husband pay his former wife £453m. It is believed that the divorce award is the highest made in an English divorce case.

The Judge had found the total value of the wife’s claim to be £453,576,152, comprising 41.5% of the total marital assets, and considered a divorce award of that sum to be justified in all the circumstances.

However, the Court of Appeal has been told by the ex-wife that she has not received “a penny from him” despite the divorce award.
