British millionaire property magnate has been shot dead outside a five-star hotel in Argentina after being held up by armed robbers who police believe followed him from the airport.

Matthew Charles Gibbard, 50, was named locally as the victim of a brutal attack that took place in broad daylight outside the Faena hotel in Buenos Aires.

According to reports, his stepson, Stefan Zone, 28, was also shot in the thigh and is recovering in hospital.

Alberto Fernandez, Argentina’s President branded the incident “atrocious” adding: “We must be severe, we cannot tolerate this. We must seek out those responsible and make them pay with the rigor of justice.”

There has been a recent spate of attacks by ‘motochorros’ in the city recently. One Canadian man was apparently tracked from the same airport to the Intercontinental hotel where he was forced to hand over his belongings to an armed assailant.
