Who fed the nation during lockdown? Was it outgoing Tesco boss David Lewis, who hauled in £6.42m – a 33 per cent increase over the previous year?

The 2019 median average of £3.6m for CEOs was flat, but still represents 120 times what the average worker made. Only a minority – 36 – of FTSE 100 companies have announced cuts to executive pay in response to the Covid-19 crisis.
