LONDON (AP)Roman Abramovich completed the sale of Chelsea to a consortium fronted by Los Angeles Dodgers part-owner Todd Boehly on Monday.

The price is 2.5 billion pounds ($3.2 billion) – the highest ever for a sports team.

Abramovich’s 19-year tenure ended after he had to sell the club after being sanctioned over his links to Russian President Vladimir Putin following the invasion of Ukraine.
