The former French Minister of Urban Affairs Bernard Tapie, 78, and his wife were on Sunday beaten when burglars accessed their home through the 1st floor window without being detected by security guards.

Tapie rose from grass to grace. He ended up building a media and sports empire. When he had the money, he used to show off through acquiring a 72-meter yatch and a football club – Olympique de Merseille. The team worn the French football league when Tapie was still the owner.
