This is kind of a head-scratcher.The CEO of Lloyds Banking Group in London, Antonio Horta-Osorio, has been forced to take a break because he was working himself to the bone, and evidently was really exhausted.

The BBC’s Robert Peston reports:

Antonio Horta-Osorio has been told by his doctors that he is physically and mentally exhausted, as a result of the way he has immersed himself in running Lloyds Banking Group.

The big question is whether Mr Horta-Osorio will ever come back. A colleague of his said that he was becoming more and more tired, and his doctors ordered him to take a break.

Huh. Wonder if there’s more to it than that.
