Commodities' chief cashes in with shares

The boss of commodities giant Glencore became one of the biggest earners among London's top 100 companies after he picked up a dividend worth £69m.

Chief executive Ivan Glasenberg, who owns roughly 1.1bn shares or a 15.5% stake, will receive the bumper award after the company unveiled its first full-year dividend of $0.10 (6.9p) a share in its maiden set of annual results as a public company.
