Retail tycoon re-elected as director of the company

Sports Direct's Mike Ashley has been re-elected as director of the company.

He secured more than 90 percent of the votes, although a quarter of independent shareholders refused to back him.

In the last 15 months, he's taken over a number of retail chains including House of Fraser, Evans Cycles, Game Digital, Sofa-dot-com and, most recently, Jack Wills.
