66 year old Sir Richard Branson gives the thumbs up after a nasty bike accident near his home in the British Virgin Islands, securing his position as the most badass billionaire on the block.
“My attitude has always been, if you fall flat on your face, at least you’re moving forward. All you have to do is get back up and try again. At least I’m practicing what I preach — though a little too literally!”
He was training for month long Virgin branded charity athletic event in Italy called “The Virgin Strive Challenge,” which includes hiking, biking and swimming portions when he took the spill according to cnn.com. He suffered a cracked cheek and some torn ligaments from the fall, along with a grade A shiner.
His injuries might leave him drinking his tea from a straw for a bit but judging by his willingness to tweet pics of his torn up face, he is taking this all in stride and embracing his position atop the leader board for badass billionaires.
