Chelsea Star Michael Ballack's son Emilio killed in a biking crash.png

Former Chelsea midfielder Michael Ballack’s son Emilio has been tragically killed in a quad bike crash in Portugal. The 18-year-old is said to have passed away in an accident around 2am this morning.

The tragedy happened in Troia south of Lisbon, close to a house his retired footballer dad purchased years ago.

Firefighters who were among the emergency services sent to the scene were unable to confirm the dead man was Ballack’s son.

But they revealed the tragedy happened when the quad fell on top of the victim and crushed him on land at the estate where he was staying.


An officer based at Grandola near Troia said: “I know the dead man was the son of a well-known footballer but I don’t have details about who it was.

“The accident happened at the family home. The quad rider wasn’t on a public road and his was the only vehicle involved.

“The quad was on an uneven piece of land and at this stage it appears to have gone backwards and as it did fell on top of the victim and crushed him.

Efforts to revive the youngster at the scene were unsuccessful and he was declared dead at the spot where the accident occurred. GNR police based in Troia and paramedics were also mobilised.

Trained counsellors are said to be helping the dead individual's family, who according to one of the emergency responders were in the house at the time.

The teenager’s body has been taken to the Institute of Forensic Medicine in the city of Santiago de Cacem south of the scene of the accident for a post-mortem.


Michael, who is the only child of engineer Stephan and swimmer Karin, married long-time girlfriend Simone Lambe back in 2008.

They had three children together with Louis in 2001, Emilio in 2002 and Jordi in 2005.
