Phew! So day one of the excellent (yet exhausting) Gadget Show Live has come to a close – it’s now time to crank up the hard drives once again for day two.

Just suppose for a minute that money was no object, what would you buy? That’s the conundrum faced by today’s mega-rich footballers. Some say they’re overpaid, but we say, they’ve got their own problems: what expensive toys should they buy!
