Shark bite? Not according to his friends.
They say Sir Richard Branson suffered nothing more than, a bit of a hickey.
Although they may be from the same family, it was a stingray and not a shark.
The Virgin Airways tycoon was visiting Cayman has revealed he’s been in the wars.
Sir Richard told his social media followers not only had he been bitten, but he also, walked into a glass door, needing stitches.
His friend here in Cayman laughed off international media reports that seem to have made a mountain, out of a molehill.
“Actually it was a hickey. It’s not really a bite,” said Jackie Doak.
“It broke the skin it was just a love kiss. We’ve got them before. It’s not that required any medical condition it was just a little love bite.”
Mr. Branson was bitten, albeit with affection rather than aggression, while posing for pictures for conservationist Dr. Guy Harvey.
