World biggest tunnel drill-bit in Football Tycoon plan of purchase

Roman Abramovich
The most popular football tycoon, Roman Abramovich, the boss of Chelsea FC is planning to buy the world biggest tunnel drill-bit. The announcement to purchase the tunnel drill-bit which will cost the billionaire around 80 Million Pounds has been made recently. The plan to buy the tool is to bore a tunnel near the black sea.

It had been claimed that the drill would tunnel a subterranean passage across the Bering Strait, between Siberia and Alaska

However, a spokesman for the billionaire industrialist swiftly denied the suggestion.

German magazine Der Spiegel has reported that the drill-bit will be used by the football mogul's company Infrastruktura to dig tunnels to improve the infrastructure around the Black Sea resort of Sochi – where the 2014 Winter Olympics are scheduled to take place.

Even without being used to drill a tunnel under the Bering Strait, it has been suggested the device could make more than a billion dollars a year by leasing it out.

The drill-bit will be made by German firm Herrenknecht AG, who were involved in the construction of the Channel Tunnels
