On Thursday Riz speaks with Vicente Fox, the former president of Mexico.

Fox broke 71 years of one-party rule in Mexico when he became president in 2000, and during his administration the Mexican economy expanded rapidly, although the massive gap between rich and poor remains.

He tells us the story of his transformation from a truck driver for Coca-Cola to the CEO of Coca-Cola in Mexico, and later to the first Mexican president elected from an opposition party since 1920.

He recounts the challenges of dealing with George Bush, the US President, especially after disagreeing with him on the Iraq war.
