The Portuguese star's £15m Gulfstream G200 was landing at El Prat airport when its landing gear broke on impact.
Cristiano Ronaldo will be grounded for the foreseeable future after the superstar’s private jet crashed on landing at Barcelona’s El Prat airport.
The Real Madrid and Portugal star was not on board the plane when the crash happened on Monday evening.
Eyewitnesses report that the plane’s landing gear broke on impact with the runway, forcing emergency services into action.
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!
