This video shows the moment Michail Antonio climbed out of his Lamborghini dressed as a snowman after crashing into a stranger’s front garden on Christmas Day.
The West Ham winger escaped unhurt after crashing his £210,000 car into a garden wall in Balham, south London at around 6.30pm on Wednesday.
In the video, Antonio can be seen climbing out of the car dressed as a snowman as a crowd of bystanders watches, with the garden wall he crashed into completely trashed.
Antonio was dressed in the festive outfit after posting a video to his Instagram page earlier in the day singing ‘Walking in the Air’.
Kia Rosina, who was in the house, told The Athletic: “Dinner was nearly ready and then I just heard this massive bang and the whole house shook.
There are two bin sheds out there and they’re both bricks, and they went everywhere.
“At first, I thought it was a bus due to how loud the bang was. I looked outside and then I said, ‘Mum!’ then we ran outside to see if whoever was in the car was fine.
“As soon as I heard the bang, my heart was beating fast because obviously, I was worried. I didn’t know what was happening or if the driver had hit the house but then I looked out of the window and thankfully, it hadn’t.
“When we went out, we thought the driver was going to be hurt really badly because it didn’t look good.
“My mum ran out before me so by the time I got out of the house, he (had) jumped out of the car in his snowman outfit. Once we realised no-one was hurt, we were all relieved.”
Antonio left the scene with passengers without apologising or covering the damage, according to the family. Police were present at the property until 10pm while debris remained on Thursday.
The 29-year-old played the full 90 minutes of West Ham’s defeat at Palace.
A Metropolitan Police statement said: “Police were called to Nightingale Lane, Balham, at 18.36hrs on Wednesday, 25 December to reports of a car crashed into a garden.
“Officers attended and a Lamborghini car was found at the scene.
“It was reported that it had left the road and crashed into a road sign and a garden wall. The driver did not require hospital treatment.
“There were no other reported injuries. There is no police investigation.”
