Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo has written off his Ferrari in a crash near Manchester Airport.
The 23-year-old winger was driving the sports car through a tunnel beneath the runways when he smashed into a barrier.
Greater Manchester Police (GMP) said his team-mate Edwin van der Sar was following in his Bentley, but the Dutch keeper was not involved in the crash.
Pc Nigel Snell said that given the damage to the car, it was "fortunate" that Ronaldo was not injured.
The accident happened on the A538 Altrincham Road, between Wilmslow and Hale, Cheshire, at about 1020 GMT
