One of the runways at El Prat was closed for a short time after the incident, in which nobody was killed, but the pilot was attended to for very minor injuries.

Ronaldo bought the Gulfstream G200 last year for £15m (N6b), and sometimes leases his plane out for private clients.

Close sources say: ‘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.’ 

So he’s fine then!
