Chelsea press officer ‘narrowly avoids horrific accident’ as storm blows glass table off terrace and causes thousands of pounds of damage to Conte’s car
Atkins was walking to his car, adjacent to Conte’s Nissan Juke, when the powerful gust sent the table top flying. Conte’s car suffered thousands of pounds worth of damage in the incident, which according to the report, left Atkins shaken.
A Blues insider, who saw CCTV footage of the incident, told the tabloid: ‘It’s dramatic stuff.
‘You see Steve walk right past Antonio’s car, then suddenly this massive square of glass hurtles out of nowhere and down on to it at frightening speed, sending thousands of tiny pieces flying everywhere.
‘Steve was pretty shaken up by the whole thing, as you can imagine. And Antonio’s car was left in a right old state. A gaping hole right in it.’
The Italian shunned a luxury club car and opted instead for a more environmentally friendly, run-of-the-mill family crossover to get him from A to B, as he lives just a mile or so from the training ground.
