Most of Lloyd's modern icons usually spend their leisure time on the golf course or sailing. But which well-known figure admitted a fondness for mowing the lawn this week?

None other than Dane Douetil, Brit's group chief executive.

In a revealing interview with a national newspaper, Douetil said he would be lost without his "ultimate boy's toy" - a "sabre-tooth tiger ride-on mowing machine".

Backchat wonders whether Douetil has ever desired to ride that bad boy into the boardroom?

Who knows, the machine might become the company mascot, and Douetil could soon be seen riding his 'tiger' down Leadenhall Street.
