Michail Antonio crashed Lamborghini dressed as a snowman and thought he’d blow up

West Ham star Michail Antonio has opened up on the time he crashed his £210,000 Lamborghini – dressed as a snowman.

It was Christmas Day in 2019 and Antonio was on his way to West Ham’s team hotel as they prepared to take on Crystal Palace on Boxing Day.

But having turned up to training dressed as a snowman as a prank, things went south when he hit the road in icy conditions.

It was at this point when Antonio lost control of his Lamborghini Huracan and smashed into someone’s garden, smashing a bin shed.

When onlookers went to help out, they were shocked to see a snowman emerge from the smoke and debris but Antonio has told all.

“This conversation is very like… (touches chest),” He told the On The Judy podcast. “Still to this day, it’s hurt me.

“Basically yeah, slippery road. Obviously, in the car, it holds corners nicely in it so I’m going like 30, maybe 35, on a 30 road.

“It holds corners so I’m thinking I don’t even need to brake, I’m just gonna go around the corner, sick car.

“As I’m going round the corner, it skids. So I s*** myself and I slam on the brakes.

“Worst thing you can do on ice, yeah, slam on the brakes cause you just speed up. Slam on the brakes, just skid but I’ve just gone up the curb.

“I don’t even remember it and then I’m seeing smoke coming out the front of the car.

“The engine’s in the back so I’m thinking the car’s gonna blow up even though it’s the airbags. Having to jump out of the passenger side, the tiny car.”

Antonio ended up playing the full 90 minutes on Boxing Day despite the crash, where remarkably no one was hurt.

He even set up Robert Snodgrass in a 2-1 defeat to the Eagles, though it was a Christmas Day like no other.

“It’s a madness and the thing is, I’m in the snowman costume as well,” he added.

“I confiscate people’s phones. Like ‘take your phone, give me your phone’.

“I was taking people’s phones but the only person who’s phone I didn’t take was the owner of the house and then she was the one who came out blogging and it was not even her garden bro.

“So she lives around the corner, attached to the garden but her garden was on that side.

“It was some next guy who I spoke to afterwards, it was his garden. He was cool but she’s like, ‘oh a Lamborghini landed in my garden’. It’s not even in the garden. And then she sold the story again this year.”
