Cristiano Ronaldo had to ask for an ambulance to help him home after a jinxed trip to a ski resort near Madrid with his girlfriend in his new £260,000 Lamborghini.
A tow truck is said to have removed his luxury sports car after he had to stop the vehicle because of wrist problems.
A Spanish showbiz website said he alerted police and a roadside assistance firm before hopping into the ambulance with his girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez.
The bizarre incident happened around 6pm on Sunday after Ronaldo, 31, took his shop assistant new squeeze to visit the Navacerrada ski resort near Madrid
Informalia, quoting ‘well-placed sources’, said sudden wrist pain forced the footballer to park up on a roundabout and call for help.
There was no immediate reaction from Real Madrid or Ronaldo, who had his right wrist bandaged during Real’s 2-1 win over Malaga on Saturday after suffering an apparent knock in training the day before.
Police and the local ambulance service were not available to comment on the reports on Wednesday morning, which have been widely picked up by other Spanish media.
Ronaldo was trolled online after taking to Instagram last October to post a picture of himself standing next to the vehicle with the caption, ‘Bom Dia’ — good morning in English.
