Antonio Conte had a narrow escape when high winds blew a glass table top off a roof terrace and on to his car parked at Chelsea's Surrey training base.

The Italian head coach expressed relief that no-one was hurt in the incident earlier this month at Chelsea's Cobham training centre.

'I was having my lunch when this happened. The wind brought a big (piece of) glass on my car.

Conte was able to laugh off the incident, saying the damage to his modest car was 'the last thing' on his mind.

A Blues insider, who saw CCTV footage of the incident, told The Sun: 'It's dramatic stuff.

'You see Steve [Atkins, Chelsea's director of communications] walk right past Antonio's car, then suddenly this massive square of glass hurtles out of nowhere and down on to it at frightening speed, sending thousands of tiny pieces flying everywhere.
