Russian state media on Sunday cited an unconfirmed report that Chelsea football club owner Roman Abramovich’s British visa has run out, while his spokesman declined to comment.

AFP also requested a comment on the issue from the Home Office in London, but none was immediately forthcoming.

The report quoted a source in Abramovich’s entourage as saying that Britain had not refused to issue a new visa to Abramovich but was considering his application.

Russia’s Sport-Express website cited sources in Abramovich’s entourage as saying that it had taken a long time for his application to be processed but he was due to get a new British visa shortly.

The Bell was started by the former editor-in-chief of the RBC media group, Elizaveta Osetinskaya. Under her leadership, RBC was known for high-profile investigations.
