However, after waiting around six hours and 40 minutes, they decided to cut their losses and leave at 9 p.m. as Ronaldo was in action against Villarreal in the Champions League and emerged a late winner about 50 minutes later.
A source told The Sun that “Even with all Ronaldo’s money, he’s in the same boat as the rest of us”.
“His security waited for hours, apparently hoping an oil tanker would eventually arrive, but he was forced to leave.
“Both the men looked tired as they waited in the rain. If this continues, Ronaldo could be imprisoned at home like everyone else.” It was added.
Even if the tanker had arrived, the driver and security staff could buy a maximum of £30 ($40) of fuel, with Shell introducing a cap to prevent panic buying.
