Former Chelsea star Pat Nevin has narrated how he nearly ran over Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich while driving around the Isle of Arran.

Nevin told BBC Radio Scotland that he got out the way at the last moment and avoided a head-on collision with Abramovich who was cycling on the island off the Ayrshire coast.

"About three years ago I was on holiday in Arran, and I was driving up the north side of Arran. Every time you go on holiday there you drive round the whole island,” he said.

“I came round a corner at the top just before Lochranza and I nearly hit a guy on a bike. I just got out the way at the last moment, I could have killed the guy. It was Roman Abramovich.

“What a story that would have been if I had killed Roman Abramovich. I just missed him. His yacht was off the coast, and he was cycling around. He doesn't know to this day that it was me.”
