EPL star on crashed R4.2m Lambo

Premier League star Michail Antonio has finally opened up about crashing his Lamborghini Hurucan into a house wearing a snowman suit.

The West Ham forward went viral in 2019 on Christmas day when images surfaced on social media of him attempting to get out of his crashed £210k (R4.2m) supercar in a bizarre outfit.

While he opted to stay away from the press and notably attempted to 'confiscate' phones people were snapping images with in the area, he's now come clean on the events with the On The Judy Podcast.

"Still to this day it has hurt me. I miss that car," Antonio said. "Basically, obviously I was driving – slippery road. In the car, it corners nicely, it holds the road, so was going 30/35mph (40/60km) on a 30mph (40km) road.

"It holds corners so I think I don’t need to break, I'm just gonna go round the corner like I do all the time. Sick car. But as I go round the corner, it skids. So as it skids, I sh*t myself and I slam on the brakes – worst thing you could do on ice.

"Slam on the brakes, you just speed up, you’re meant to just go with it kinda thing. Slam on the brakes, skid, I’ve just gone up the curb, but I don’t really remember it, everything just happened so fast.

"Then smoke comes out of the front of the car. The engine is in the back so I'm thinking 'the car is gonna blow up!', even though it's just the airbags. I’m then having to jump out of the passenger side of the tiny car. It's madness.

"And the thing is, I was in a snowman costume as well. I don't get why I didn't take it off in there, sort it out."

Antonio went on to play for the Hammers the very next day and has developed into one of their leading performers with 15 league goals in his last 35 games.
