In what's proving to be a fairly football heavy news day Wealthy Russian Industrialist Roman Abromavich could be facing legal action in a Swiss Court after the mysteriosu disappearance of £9 million (in footballing terms that’s 1 Arjen Robben or 3 Alexei Smertins).
According to the Guardian this could lead to his assets in Chelsea FC being frozen but his spokesperson believes this scenario is "far-fetched".
Either way, what's most important is that it's further evidence for the Londonist's "Abramovich is Bond Villain" theory.
Let’s look at the facts:
- A large yacht permanently sailing around the Mediterranean (Never Say Never Again) - Check
- A dodgy history in the Russian Oil industry (The World Is Not Enough) - Check
- A ruthless yet devastatingly attractive henchman (Goldeneye) - Check
- A large structure capable of housing a doomsday device (Every Bond film ever) - Check
So don't come crying to us when all of Earths renewable fuel sources are destroyed sending the price of oil sky-rocketing and we're plunged into eternal darkness. We warned you.
