New data from strategy consultancy firm Brand Finance reveals that Nike is worth around £10 billion more than its closest rival H&M, which managed to hold on to second place for another year thanks to a significant store expansion drive.

The addition of 442 new international stores last year saw the Swedish fashion retailer grow by nearly a quarter, with a total brand value of £15.16 billion up from £12.67 billion.
