West Ham midfielder, Manuel Lanzini, miraculously survives a horrific car accident on his way to the club's training ground in East London on Thursday.

The 29-year-old who had just returned from international break with Argentina was being chauffeur-driven in a £70,000 Mercedes when the car flipped over.

Firefighters raced to the scene while other motorists watch the horrific accident, however, Lanzini miraculously walked out unhurt.

However, UK Sun reported that Lanzini was checked at the scene but ruled well enough to carry on to training.

A spokesman for West Ham confirmed the crash saying: "It happened on the A12 near the training ground."

A source said: "It's a miracle he's alive, from what I've heard.

"This was an incredibly near miss and could have killed Lanzini and the driver.

"It's common for West Ham players to use a chauffeur service - especially for those who live in town.

"They were on a dual carriageway so it could have caused complete carnage.

"Just goes to show, it doesn't matter how much cash you have - we're all just as vulnerable to a smash like this.

"Thank goodness he was okay."
