Sir Richard Branson has revealed that he could be interested in a bid for Crystal Palace after administrators placed an advert in a bid to sell the troubled club.

The Championship side were forced into administration a fortnight ago with debts of over £30m but have 20 parties interested in buying the club. Branson has personally expressed an interest, but insisted a bid from Virgin was “unlikely”.
