CHELSEA owner Roman Abramovich revealed yesterday that his vast assets include seven residences in the United Kingdom, three in France, 38,000 square feet of property outside Moscow, two BMWs, three Mercedes -- and a Volkswagen Golf.

Mr Abramovich stated that he earned £3m (€3.5m) last year and that he has around £72m (€85m) in cash in his various bank accounts. He is also the owner of several businesses, the most famous of which, of course, is Chelsea FC.

Earlier this week, Russia's 'Finans' magazine published its list of the 500 richest Russians. For the first time, Mr Abramovich was not in the top three. He was pushed down to fifth place, with an estimated wealth of $17.1bn (€12.6bn) and replaced in third place by Alisher Usmanov, the metals magnate and Arsenal shareholder.
