Russian billionaire and Chelsea FC owner Roman Abramovich
Russian billionaire and Chelsea FC owner Roman Abramovich has kept his position as Britain's second richest man, although his fortune has fallen by more than 40%, a British paper reported on Sunday.

According to The Sunday Times 2009 Rich List, to be published soon, Abramovich's wealth has fallen from 11.7 billion British pounds ($17 billion) a year ago to just 7 billion British pounds ($10.3 billion) "on the back of collapsing shares in his steel and other investments."

According to the list, which includes persons born or based in the U.K., Indian-born steel magnate Lakshmi Mittal has kept his position as the U.K.'s richest man, although his wealth has plummeted by almost 17 billion British pounds ($24.9 billion) to 10.8 billion British pounds ($15.9 billion), down 61% in a year.

The richest British-born billionaire is the Duke of Westminster at number 3. His fortune has shrunk by just 7% to 6.5 billion British pounds ($9.6 billion), the paper said.

Overall, the number of billionaires in Great Britain has dropped from 75 to 43, The Sunday Times reported.
