London, Feb. 19 (ANI): After smashing his 200,000 pound worth Ferrari in a tunnel, Cristiano Ronaldo is facing another 20,000 pound bill for damaging tunnel property. The Manchester United winger who has already lost his pricey car when it hit both walls of the tunnel, has now been asked by the airport authorities to pay for repairs to the damaged brickwork, buckled railings and for a smashed exit door of the tunnel, The Mirror reports. Its a real double whammy for Ronaldo. He has already lost a 200,000-pound car and this is another cost to factor in. Even though he earns a fortune, the accident has proved to be very expensive indeed especially as hed only been out in the car a couple of times, a source close to the Portuguese star said. The-23-year-old footballer, who remained unhurt, crashed on a corner while driving to training last month. The front of the Ferrari was demolished and one wheel was wrenched off. Investigators later found that brake discs on the car were broken. But experts at Ferrari said the damage was caused by the collision and the car had been in perfect condition. The expenses of this accident are surely going to make the 120,000-pound -a-week star think that it was the most expensive corner hes ever taken. (ANI)
