Ronaldo faces questions over crash

Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo is to be questioned by police after crashing his sports car in a tunnel near Manchester Airport.

The 23-year-old winger was driving his Ferrari sports car through tunnels underneath the runways when the accident happened on Thursday morning.

Ronaldo's 200,000 car was wrecked, but amazingly he wasn't hurt and soon returned to training with his team-mates.

The Portuguese international spoke to police at the scene of the crash, but Greater Manchester Police said officers would be interviewing him again at some point as part of their investigation into what happened.
