DiCaprio borrows £400m superyacht for world cup

Hollywood superstar Leonardo DiCaprio has taken over one of the world’s largest superyachts in order to watch the World Cup in style.
DiCaprio and more than 20 friends are said to have taken over the 482-foot Topaz, worth £400million, while staying in Brazil for the football tournament.
The yacht is owned by Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, deputy prime minister of the United Arab Emitates and owner of Manchester City FC.
The Topaz was custom made for billionaire Sheikh Mansour in 2012, and is the the fifth largest superyacht in the world. The imposing yacht was birthed in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on Thursday while the Wolf of Wall Street star headed San Paulo to the kick off game between Brazil and Croatia.
Seen in the stands wearing a Brazilian scarf around his neck, the 39-year-old actor tried to keep a low profile as he watched the game. However, it was hard for his yacht to do the same considering its imposing size. It is not clear whether DiCaprio and his friends have borrowed the yacht from Sheikh Mansour or if they are renting it off the wealthy Man City owner.
The 43-year-old Sheikh, part of the royal family of Abu Dhabi, does not exactly need the money, with a personal wealth estimated at around £2.9 billion and an estimated family fortune of £90 billion. Sheikh Mansour, who is the half-brother of the current president of the UAE, has two wives and five children.
It appears Sheikh Mansour and the Hollywood star has been in contact about the vessel in the past, as this is not the first time Leo has thrown a party on the Topaz.
