In a hearing that took less than one minute, a district judge in London on Wednesday granted Slavica Ecclestone a divorce.

Neither the Croatian, a former Armani model, nor her ex-husband, F1 chief executive Bernie Ecclestone, were present.

In court papers, Mrs Ecclestone accused the 78-year-old billionaire of "unreasonable behaviour" that had caused her "stress and anxiety".

The judge found that Mr Ecclestone "behaved in such a way that the petitioner cannot reasonably be expected to live with the respondent" and that the marriage had "broken down irretrievably".

Bernie Ecclestone's papers said he would not dispute the divorce or the legal costs.

A private hearing will be held if a financial settlement cannot be agreed.

Slavica, 50, and Bernie married in 1985 and have two daughters.
