In football news, a 74-year-old woman was behind the wheel of the other car involved in the accident with Marcus Rashford which left her shaken - but she didn't know who the Manchester United star was.

Rashford's white motor was wrecked after a collision which reportedly left the grandmother very shaken but unhurt following the incident near United's training complex at around midnight.

In football news, the crash happened after United had returned to their Carrington training base following their Premier League victory over Burnley.

The players returned to the training ground by team bus to collect their own cars before setting off home.

Pictures and footage surfaced online in the aftermath of the incident showing the damage suffered by Rashford's Rolls Royce.

On Sunday morning, Rashford posted on social media: "Three points on the road! I'm alright guys thanks for the messages."

Rashford's Rolls-Royce knocked down a traffic light camera post in the crash. The England ace, 25, had just left United's training ground in Carrington on his way home from his side's 1-0 Premier League win at Burnley.

The collision sent his 2.5-ton vehicle — which has a top speed of 155mph — into the post. A source said: "Both drivers were badly shaken. Marcus immediately checked to see if the woman was okay and swapped details."

In football news, footage showed his car with pieces of the rear bumper ripped off and strewn on the side of the road as hazard lights flashed. Police breathalysed both drivers. No arrests were made and police decided not to call an ambulance as the female driver said she did not want to go to hospital.

The accident happened in a 40mph zone on Carrington Spur near United's Aon training complex — where players had returned by coach just before midnight. A source told The Sun: "The woman was on her way home from baby­sitting her grand-daughter. She's a cautious, careful driver and even more so when it's raining — which it was.
