Atletico Madrid star had to borrow a Fiat Panda 4X4 after storm hit Spain
Can't beat the old Panda, can you?
Belgian footballer Yannick Carrasco, who currently plays for Atletico Madrid in Spain, was forced to borrow his neighbour's Fiat Panda 4X4 after Storm Filomena wreaked havoc in the Spanish capital.
Carrasco (who earns £180,000 a week at Atletico Madrid) had to use the plucky 1990 off-roader to get the Wanda Metropolitano stadium in time for training and he also gave a ride to his teammates Šime Vrsaljko and Thomas Lemar. Footage of the unusual sight was uploaded on social media by Marcos Llorente, who also plays for Atletico Madrid.
Filomena hit the Spanish capital a few days ago in what The Guardian described as the "worst snowstorm in 50 years".
"There was a great job from all the employees who work on the playing field so that the field is available today so that we can work," said Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone. "We came in vans. Obviously, the main highways and roads are fine, but in Madrid urbanisations are difficult to get out of".
It just goes to show, when the going gets tough, you can't really can't beat a cheap and cheerful Panda from the days of old.
