West Ham United striker Diafra Sakho has crashed his car into somebody's garden.

The Lamborghini was pictured on social media buried in a hedge, having apparently hit a Mini Cooper before ploughing through a garden wall.

Photographs were posted on Twitter and Snapchat by Sophie Engstrom, who claimed it was her residence playing host to the unexpected guest.

Gladly no-one was injured in the incident and Sakho made his own social media posts to let fans know he was in good health.

Ms Engstrom tweeted: "Great night when Sakho drives into your house and car."

Sakho himself posted on his personal Twitter account: "Thank you for the messages. Was involved in a small car accident this evening. Thankfully no one was hurt."

That's far more than could be said for his motor, though. Not to mention Ms Engstrom's Mini Cooper.

Ms Engstrom seemed to take the crashing of a supercar into her house in reasonably good humour, and indeed she could be pleased that the garden hedge performed a useful function in limiting the damage done to the rest of the property.

There isn't much they can sell you down the garden centre that could stand up to a Lamborghini.

Presumably this incident will now provide a boon for the hedge-selling industry, with members of the public sure to be increasingly wary of Premier League footballers roaming wild in their neighbourhood in the depths of the night.
