A photo has emerged showing the damage to Cristiano Ronaldo’s £1.7million Bugatti Venyon supercar that crashed.
The accident happened in Mallorca yesterday morning after the luxury vehicle was shipped to the Spanish island so the footballer could enjoy the summer holidays with the family.
It is believed to have been driven by one of his bodyguards, who crashed into a wall but escaped unharmed.
Father-of-five Ronaldo, 37, was in a small convoy with his loved ones in another vehicle when his employee went off the road and crashed into the stone wall.
The island’s newspaper Cronica Balear said the bodyguard got out of the car to continue his journey, leaving other staff of the Man United footballer to meet police at the scene.
It wasn’t immediately clear where the Portugal international could have gone, but he was pictured enjoying days with his family on his £5.5million superyacht, which is moored in Port Adriano.
Ronaldo is believed to be renting a luxury villa close to the scene of yesterday morning’s accident on a side street near Joan March Hospital in Bunyola Parish.
The damaged Bugatti was later taken away on a tow truck covered with a blue tarpaulin.
Spanish police confirmed yesterday afternoon that they had no information to suggest Cristiano was in the car at the time.
A well-placed source said: “The car crashed into a wall but there was only property damage, no one was hurt and the driver took full responsibility for what happened.
“The information about who was behind the wheel and what happened is registered in a police database and is available to courts or officials if further investigations are needed.
‘But it’s more about the need for the information to be registered so that the owner of the damaged property can make a claim for damages and use the police report as a backup in case there are later disputes about how the damage was done.’
Another insider added: “The car appears to have veered off the road and hit a wall that is part of the protection of a house with a gas canister depot behind it.
“Cristiano was not at the scene when officers arrived, nor was the person who officers were told was driving the car at the time of the accident.”
Ronaldo, who jetted to Mallorca last week, is also said to have transported a Mercedes-Benz G-Class to the island.
The Bugatti’s whereabouts were not immediately clear today, although police said its owner or helper was responsible for arranging the tow lane that took the vehicle away.
It is understood that the only rescue workers present were the police. Sources said neither firefighters nor paramedics were mobilized.
Cristiano flew to Mallorca on June 14 with his five children and his girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez.
It is the first time Cristiano and Georgina have vacationed with their daughter Esmeralda, whose twin brother died in childbirth in mid-April.
They should stay in the house for another three to four days.
The footballer and his family chose Mallorca for their summer holiday last year before the striker announced his return to Old Trafford.
