Bidder pays £1.4m for lunch with icon Buffett

An anonymous bidder has won a private lunch with billionaire investor Warren Buffett in an eBay auction - to the tune of $2.3m (£1.4m).

The bid fell short of last year's $2.6 (£1.6m). The identity of the winning bidder wasn't immediately released.

All proceeds go to the Glide Foundation, which provides social services to the poor and homeless in San Francisco.

Buffett will spend several hours discussing whatever it is the winner would like to talk about.
