Cristiano Ronaldo’s private jet reportedly crash landed at Barcelona airport on Monday night after the plane’s landing gear broke on impact with the runway.
Neither Ronaldo nor any of his family were on board when the Real Madrid star’s Gulf-stream G200 aircraft was reported to have suffered a landing gear problem as it touched down at Barcelona’s El Prat airport.
The incident – in which no one was hurt -resulted in one of the airport’s runways being closed as emergency services dealt with the jet, which Ronaldo is believed to have bought for about £16 million one year ago.
Ronaldo was with his Real Madrid teammates in Germany at the time of the crash ahead of Los Blancos’ Champions League match with Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday evening.
