Britain's wartime prime minister Winston Churchill on Saturday topped a poll of leaders most admired by chief executives, edging out Apple founder Steve Jobs and anti-apartheid icon Nelson Mandela.
The survey of some 1,300 business leaders, carried out by financial services giant PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), saw "Iron Lady" Margaret Thatcher as the only woman in the top ten, at seventh.
Jobs was second on the list and fellow business tycoon Jack Welch, who led General Electric for 20 years, came in fifth.
Political leaders took up the remaining places in the top ten.
