Bill Gates and his wife Melinda Gates have announced their divorce after 27 years, saying “we no longer believe we can grow together as a couple”.
“After a great deal of thought and a lot of work on our relationship, we have made the decision to end our marriage,” the pair wrote on Twitter.
The two met in the late 1980s when Melinda joined Bill’s Microsoft firm. They have three children.
They jointly run the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
