One of the richest men in the world has shown he is a class act behind a ukulele.
Warren Buffet, generally regarded as one of the most consistent and successful investors of all time – with an estimated fortune of $39 billion (approximately Â£24.85 billion) – played a melodious tune on a ukulele to absolute perfection.
He was playing the instrument against the backdrop of a model railway line, which was apt because his song was themed around life on train tracks.
"I've been working on the railroad, all the livelong day," the 81-year-old sang while strumming away at the musical instrument.
"I've been working on the railroad, just to pass the time away."
The so-called performance was for a charity event celebrating the Chinese Lunar New Year holiday.
Buffet, who is known as the Wizard of Omaha, has pledged to give away 99 per cent of his fortune to charity.
"My pledge: More than 99 per cent of my wealth will go to philanthropy during my lifetime or at death," he wrote in an article for CNN in 2010.
"Measured by dollars, this commitment is large. In a comparative sense, though, many individuals give more to others every day."
