Two World-Famous Sports Stars In Bid To Buy Chelsea?

Two of the most famous sports stars in the world – Lewis Hamilton and Serena Williams – have reportedly joined a consortium who are bidding to buy Chelsea.

Report: 3 Groups Remain In Race To Take Over Chelsea

According to CNN, the seven-time Formula One racing champion and the 23-time Grand Slam-winning tennis star have joined forces with Martin Broughton's bid to purchase the Blues following the departure of ex-owner Roman Abramovich. 

The Russian-Israeli oligarch was forced to put the club he bought in 2003 up for sale amid the war in Ukraine, due to his alleged ties with Russia president Vladimir Putin.

It is yet to be revealed or confirmed how much Hamilton and Williams will be investing, but both are said to be involved as "sports business investors". 

Here are 10 famous football clubs with celebrities on board: 

Other established sportspeople have joined Broughton's group, including World Athletics president Sebastian Coe and Philadelphia 76ers owners Josh Harris and David Blitzer. 

As per CNN, Hamilton's representatives have confirmed that the race driver will be involved, while Williams' spokespeople were not available for comment at the time of being contacted.
