Manchester United Gary Neville is set for an almighty ribbing from his Manchester United team-mates after his luxury car had to be towed away when he put petrol in the diesel motor.

Those good old boys at The Sun were on hand to see the much derided full-back pump £60 worth of petrol into his £100,000 Audi Q7 near his home in Bolton.

When he then tried to start the car, the engine cut out, meaning that Neville had to get it towed away by a recovery firm.

He also had to call his father, the fantastically named Neville Neville, to arrange a lift while his motor was out of action.

As one of those famous Sun onlookers quipped: "Everyone laughed because Gary has a reputation for being serious and he was left looking dozy."

World of Sport would also like to offer some kudos to the Sun sub-editors for their rather brilliant 'Bit fuelish, Neville' headline.

Neville is now 35, but last April penned a one-year extension to his Manchester United contract.

The 35-year-old joins fellow United stalwarts Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs in prolonging their playing days at the club where they began their careers.
