Cristiano Ronaldo’s £15 million private jet crashed while trying to land in Barcelona. The plane, a Gulfstream G200 which he bought last year, is sometimes rented out to private clients or companies.
The crash happened at El Prat airport on Monday evening.
The plane’s landing gear broke on impact, and a runway at the airport was closed. None of the footballer’s friends or family was onboard when the crash happened. The pilot was treated for minor injuries, but no one was seriously hurt.
A runway was closed for a short time and a pilot was attended to for very minor injuries, The Mirror has reported.
The football star, 31, who bought the plane for some £15million a year ago, is set to get a bumper new contract from Real Madrid.
A source told MirrorFootball: “The plane is normally rented by companies and it was in use by one of them.
“Cristiano Ronaldo, his family or friends were not on the plane. The incident had no major consequences.”
