The gigantic house went on the market last three years for £20.5million due to his commitments as a sports pundit in the neighbouring state.
According to the report on Daily Star, the mansion comes with a basketball court, 12 bedrooms, 17-car garage and many more facilities that the new owner will be proud of.
