The 29-year-old was not hurt in the incident but footage showed Antonio dressed up in the snowman outfit before the incident.

He reportedly crashed the $393,000 car into a garden of a house.

"Police were called to Nightingale Lane, Balham, at 18.36hrs on Wednesday, 25 December to reports of a car crashed into a garden. Officers attended,” a police statement read.

"A Lamborghini car was found at the scene. It was reported that it had left the road and crashed into a road sign and a garden wall.

"The driver did not require hospital treatment. There were no other reported injuries. There is no police investigation."

Moyes back at the helm

Premier League strugglers West Ham United have reappointed David Moyes as head coach on an 18-month deal to replace the sacked Manuel Pellegrini and help them move from the bottom half of the table.

Moyes, 56, returns to the Hammers for a second stint after saving them from the drop in the 2017-18 campaign and will face the same task with the team languishing in 17th - a point above the relegation places.

The Scot's first game back in charge will be on Wednesday at home to fellow battlers Bournemouth.

Pellegrini was sacked after Saturday's 2-1 home defeat by Leicester City, their seventh loss in nine games after a promising start to the season.
