The 36-year-old Manchester United star also ordered a member of his security team to fill up his Range Rover, and both employees were seen arriving together.

His employees were seen sipping Starbucks coffees, bought inside the garage’s Spar, as they hung out in typically rainy weather.
A source told the Sun: ‘Even with all Ronaldo’s money, he’s in the same boat as the rest of us.
Their security waited for hours, obviously hoping a tanker would finally arrive, but they were forced to leave.
The two men seemed so sick of waiting in the rain. Ronaldo could be homebound like everyone else if this continues. ‘
Both drivers were reportedly banned from buying more than £ 30 worth of fuel after Shell introduced a limit to help tackle the panic buying.

Britain’s gas stations have been hit by panic buying over the past week after oil giants revealed that a lack of heavy vehicle drivers meant they would be forced to restrict deliveries and shut down some. esplanades.
The crisis reached a fever pitch in recent days with fights breaking out at some gas stations as hours-long lines of irate drivers were seen across the country.
