Shamed banker Antonio Horta-Osorio attended the Euro 2020 final as well as Wimbledon when he breached Britain’s Covid rules last summer. 

The former boss of Lloyds Bank had a weekend of sporting fun in July, when he should have been at home isolating due to travel restrictions. 

It emerged late last year that Horta-Osorio, 57, had attended the Wimbledon finals on the weekend of July 10 and 11.

But that same Sunday, it has been revealed, he also went to Wembley to watch Italy beat England in the final of the Euros, sources told the Financial Times. 

During both events Horta-Osorio, 57, should have been isolating, having jetted in to the country on a private plane.

But he was forced to step down last weekend after the bank found out about his Wimbledon misdemeanour – plus another breach of Switzerland’s restrictions which occurred when he travelled to a wedding on the Iberian Peninsula at the start of December.
