Portuguese Real Madrid star and three time Ballon d'Or Cristiano Ronaldo's £15 million Gulfstream G200 crashed in Barcelona on Monday evening.
The private jet which he bought last year is sometimes rented out to private clients or companies.
The crash happened at El Prat airport.
The plane's landing gear broke on impact, and the runway where it happened was closed down. Neither Ronaldo, his friends nor any family member was reported to be on board the jet at the time of the crash.
The pilot was treated for minor injuries, no serious injuries, no casualties.
