Cristiano Ronaldo not on board as his plane crashes in Barcelona
Cristiano Ronaldo's private plane crashed during a landing at Barcelona's El Prat airport on Monday. No injuries were reported.
Ronaldo, who was in Dortmund at the time as Real Madrid were preparing for what resulted in a 2-2 Champions League group stage draw against Borussia Dortmund, was not on the plane at the time of the crash.
The Real Madrid forward leases out the Gulfstream G200, for which he paid a reported €19 million, to corporate clients when he is not using it.
According to Spanish media reports, the plane's landing gear broke upon descent and the plane, which seats eight passengers and a crew of two people, ran off the runway upon landing.
The estimated damages were not reported.
