Cristiano Ronaldo’s driver waited nearly seven hours to fill his £220,000 Bentley with petrol, but left without a drop, reports The Sun.
‘The wait’ to fill Ronaldo‘s Bentley
The United Kingdom has been facing a fuel crisis in some parts of the country for the last few days, now, it looks like the crisis has hit the Manchester United star, Cristiano Ronaldo. His drivers waited hours to fill the football star’s £220,000 Bentley with petrol at a forecourt.
The drivers pulled up at 2.20 pm, hoping a tanker would arrive at the filling station with supplies. But having waited six hours 40 minutes, they realized none was coming and drove away at 9 pm. His drivers kept their spirits up as they waited in the rain with takeaway Starbucks coffees from the Spar inside the garage.
A source said: “Even with all Ronaldo’s money, he’s in the same boat as the rest of us. His security waited for hours obviously hoping a tanker would eventually arrive but they were forced to drive off.”
“The two men looked so fed up waiting in the rain. Ronaldo might be housebound like everyone else if this keeps up.”
Even if a tanker had arrived, the most they could have bought was £30 after Shell introduced the cap to cope with the panic-buying.
£17million stable of supercars
The Portugal ace recently bought the flash Bentley Flying Spur to add to his £17million stable of supercars. He has been seen driving it to United’s training ground during the past week. His latest purchase came less than a month after his return to Old Trafford from Juventus.
Ronaldo’s collection includes Ferraris, Lamborghinis, McLarens, two Rolls-Royces, a Porsche 911 Turbo S, a Koenigsegg CCX, a Bentley Continental, a Range Rover and several Audis and Mercedes.
He has a £1.4million Ferrari Monza, a £1.7million Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport and a £2.15million Bugatti Chiron. But the £8.5million jewel in his collection is the Bugatti Centodieci — one of only ten to be built.
