The UK is overwhelmed by one of the worst fuel crises in history caused by an acute shortage of truck drivers. Although the authorities have claimed that the situation is being brought under and even the British Army has been called in to help, more than two thousand British gas stations were still dry on Thursday. It’s intriguing how a common commodity like fuel can be such a great leveling factor. The crisis has troubled not only the common working class but also the rich and mighty. According to a report The Sun, soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo’s driver had to wait for nearly seven hours to fill up his $220,000 Bentley.

The brand-new Bentley Flying Spur was spotted at a Shell fuel station near the Man United star’s home on Tuesday. After waiting for six hours and forty minutes, the driver lost hope of getting the precious fuel and left. The Bentley was also accompanied by a Range Rover driven by one of Ronaldo’s bodyguards. “Even with all Ronaldo’s money, he’s in the same boat as the rest of us,” a source told The Sun. “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.”
Cristiano Ronaldo is a well-known car enthusiast and has one of the most jaw-dropping car collections that includes a Bugatti Chiron, a Veyron, two Ferraris, two McLarens, two Rolls-Royce, a Porsche 911 Turbo S, and many more exotic automobiles. The 36-year-old Portugal soccer star recently bought a $2 million Ferrari Monza, which many believe could be a gift by Juventus club chairman Andrea Agnelli and his cousin John Elkann to make the striker stay in the club. However, Ronaldo surprised everyone by returning to his former club, Manchester united.
