Apr.7 (GMM) Sainsbury's, the UK supermarket giant, has denied rumours it could lose its boss to Formula One.
"I've no idea whether the boss of a company like Sainsbury's could do my job," the 82-year-old told the Guardian. "Maybe he could."
A Sainsbury's spokesman has now replied: "This is pure speculation.
"Justin's made his commitment to the business clear and is excited about Sainsbury's long-term prospects for growth. Any discussion of succession is entirely premature."
