Cristiano Ronaldo can offer his words of experience to help comfort his Real Madrid teammate.
Los Blancos French centre-forward Karim Benzema appears to have had a narrow escape from injury after emerging without a scratch after being involved in a car smash on the Reunion Island.
According to unsubstantiated local reports, the former Lyon forward was out celebrating his birthday when the accident occurred. Benzema, on his way to a party, was said to have got involved in a car race with a Porsche which ended when the goal-scorer drove his luxury sports car off the road.
The Lamborghini suffered damage to its front right panel as well as a burst tyre and broken wheel.
It’s the second time in less than a month that the Frenchman has been involved in a traffic accident. In November he walked away unscathed after smashing his Audi into a wall near his home in Madrid.
