Multi-millionaire British hotelier, 'found dead in burnt-out Range Rover with two shots to the head'
The charred body of the victim, identified locally as Oliver 'Ollie' Gobat, pictured, was discovered hours after his family - who run a £405-a-night five star boutique hotel on the island - reported him missing.
Island police and the Foreign Office would not confirm his name - but double Olympic decathlon gold medallist and family friend Daley Thompson paid a personal tribute to the man on Twitter (inset). He wrote: 'My love&thoughts go out to friends&family of Ollie Gobat. he was a gem & his family must have been so proud of him. RIP my friend. X'
