Bill and Melinda Gates announce end of their marriage​

Pair plan to continue work at their philanthropic foundation, according to statement

Bill and Melinda Gates said in a joint statement on Monday that they are ending their marriage.

The pair, who launched the world's largest charitable foundation, said they would continue to work together at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The foundation, which launched in 2000, currently has over $51 billion US in assets, according to a tax filing cited by CNBC.

In identical tweets, they said they had made the decision to end their marriage of 27 years. The financial details of the decision were not immediately clear.

"We have raised three incredible children and built a foundation that works all over the world to enable all people to lead healthy, productive lives," they said in a statement. "We ask for space and privacy for our family as we begin to navigate this new life."

Last year, Bill Gates, co-founder of software giant Microsoft and formerly the world's richest person, said he was stepping down from Microsoft's board to focus on philanthropy.

He was Microsoft's CEO until 2000 and since then has gradually scaled back his involvement in the company he co-founded with Paul Allen in 1975. He transitioned out of a day-to-day role in Microsoft in 2008 and served as chairman of the board until 2014.
