The story behind the discovery of Leonardo's 'Salvator Mundi'

Dash out and get a copy of the Sunday Times if you haven't already got one. The magazine has the story behind the discovery and attribution of Leonardo's Salvator Mundi. There's even a quote from moi. (I would link to it, but Murdoch's paywall is in the way.)
The most convincing evidence, for me, is the photo of the exquisite pentimento on Christ's thumb (above). See my earlier pentimenti story for why these little changes can be such useful evidence.
