The owner of betting group Bet365 has paid herself a salary of £323 million last year, the largest amount ever paid to a British company executive.
The salary is likely to cause some criticism in the country, as the total is 9,500 times the average salary in the country, coming out to £1.3 million per day of work. The total is also 2,000 times the salary of current prime minister Boris Johnson. It's unlikely that Coates will care though, as she paid herself £276,585 the year prior as well as dividends in the range of £45 million.
Over the course of the last three years, Coates has collected more than £817 million.
The UK businesswoman is the 19th richest person in the UK, with an estimated net worth of £6.9 billion. She started Bet365 in 2000, growing the brand into an online betting powerhouse that's present in a variety of countries around the world.
