The mother-and-daughter duo enjoyed a fun night out

On her grid, Tamara posed outside her Kensington mansion alongside Fifi, who looked adorable in a green dress and white trainers, and wrote: "Mumma and Fifi on a night out."

Despite Bernie's arrest being revealed on Thursday, it actually took place on Wednesday night at Viracopos airport.

Local police confirmed the news the next day. In a statement, they confirmed an undocumented LW Seecamp .32 gun was found in the 91-year-old's luggage during an X-ray screening. They added that he was then arrested and taken to a facility at Viracopos airport in Campinas.

According to reports, Bernie confessed to owning the gun, but said he was unaware it was in his luggage at the time. He later paid the £990 bail and was freed to travel to Switzerland.

The businessman is married to Brazilian-born Fabiana Ecclestone, who is the FIA vice-president and a member of the World Motor Sport Council. Over the past few weeks, the couple attended several events in Brazil, including a local Stock Car race in the countryside near Sao Paulo and a meeting with Nelson Piquet in Brasilia.
