Dmitry Rybolovlev won a Swiss court ruling slashing the amount he owes his ex-wife in a record divorce award from $4.5 billion to just over $600 million.

A Geneva court ordered the Russian billionaire to pay Elena Rybolovleva 565 million Swiss francs, said Geneva courts spokesman Henri Della Casa.
