West Ham star Michail Antonio was found unscathed and wearing a snowman outfit after crashing his Lamborghini into the front garden of a south London home.

The homeowner heard a “massive bang” outside their Balham house and to their shock saw the Italian super car had crashed into their bin shed.

Antonio was still dressed as a snowman having earlier in the day posted a video singing ‘Walking in the Air” , the theme of the 1982 animated film “The Snowman” on Instagram.

Manuel Pellegrini’s squad trained on Christmas morning and were due to report to a Croydon hotel ahead of their Boxing Day match against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

Homeowner Kia Rosina’s mum told The Athletic how she ran out and saw Antonio talking on the phone and saying repeatedly “don’t keep telling me I’m stupid”.

She said: “I put my arm around him (Antonio) because I was worried. I called the police and I asked for all the services, ambulance and fire brigade, because my main concern was that it was petrol and everyone would have to get out of the house because a lot of smoke was coming from his car.

"So I was fearing the worst like, ‘What if the car blows up?’

“He (Antonio) was on the phone shouting to someone saying he was alright. He kept saying, ‘Don’t keep telling me I’m stupid!’ to the person on the phone (and saying), ‘You should be asking me if I’m alright’. (It seemed like) the person on the phone kept having a go at him.”

Kia said: “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.”

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.”
