Cristiano Ronaldo has escaped unscathed from a car crash while he was driving to training. The Portuguese international crashed in a tunnel underneath runways at Manchester Airport. The incident happened at about 10.20am this morning.

A spokesman for Greater Manchester police said: “We are investigating a road traffic collision in the airport tunnel on the A538. It appears a Ferrari has collided with a barrier in the tunnel. Inquiries are continuing. The driver is being spoken to at the scene. It does not appear he has been injured.”
