Roman Abramovich has been disqualified as a director of Chelsea Football Club, the Premier League has announced.
It comes after the Russian billionaire and owner of the club was sanctioned by the British government as part of attempts to crack down on wealthy Russians in response to the invasion of Ukraine.
Mr Abramovich has had a “close relationship for decades” with Russian President Vladimir Putin, a government document announcing the move said.
