Chelsea star Tiemoue Bakayoko has been involved in a car crash on his way home from training today, The Sun has revealed.
The 23-year-old, who signed for the Blues from Monaco this summer, was driving along Blundel Lane near their Cobham facility at around 3.30pm when the incident happened.

Police were called to the scene this afternoon, but it is unclear how bad the accident was and if he sustained any major injuries.
He was travelling towards Oxshott, Surrey, when the incident happened.
It is understood nobody else was involved.
Chelsea paid Monaco £40million for Bakayoko close to transfer deadline day, handing him a five-year contract.
Bakayoko was one of Antonio Conte’s top transfer targets all summer and the Italian was understandably delighted to have landed his man.
It did look touch-and-go for the Blues at one stage when Manchester United reportedly joined the race for Bakayoko’s signature.
The Red Devils were apparently prepared to hijack the move after pinching Everton striker Romelu Lukaku from under Chelsea’s noses.
However, the 23-year-old opted to pen a deal at Stamford Bridge, and has started three games in all competitions, scoring once.
