How’s that? Andrew Strauss bowled over by St Lucia investment

Andrew Strauss has revealed that he is bowled over by his investment in St Lucia.

One year ago, the English cricket captain invested in Freedom Bay, an eco resort on the Caribbean island, and has just received his first payment of 6 per cent ROI on his two-bed villa.

Strauss, an ambassador for the resort, said:

"It is already one year on since my decision to invest in a property at Freedom Bay and I am very happy to have backed one of the few winning developments at the moment. I absolutely love St Lucia and can't wait until I can spend some time with my family relaxing and soaking up some Caribbean sun at my holiday home once it is completed. I am even happier in the meantime that my investment is safe and bringing me a decent return.

The cricketer has also announced plans to establish The Andrew Strauss Cricket Academy on the island, which will provide "quality coaching" for the local residents, Property Wire adds.
