One More Thing: Toe pain, no gain for Nolan
First, it emerged Nolan is to be replaced as chairman of Skyscanner, the online travel business that is gearing up for an IPO. Following a cash injection by Sequoia Capital, the company has hired a new chairman, Margaret Rice-Jones, a former Motorola executive.
Then, Nolan injures his toe playing rugby and finds himself pencilled in today to have it amputated.
Nolan tweeted yesterday: “*Props toe* When the donkey 2nd row you just lifted in a line-out decides to plant 20 stone on yer foot coming down . . . my amputation is tomorrow.”
But at least he has a sense of humour about it: “Bad – having toe amputated. Good – knowing you’ll get 10 per cent off a pedicure for life. I secretly wonder if losing a toe qualifies me for some sort of oldie amputees Olympics :)”.
That has got to hurt. Get well soon.
