Ex-Chelsea star Michael Ballack’s son Emilio dies in quad crash


Emilio Ballack, 18-year-old son of former Germany and Chelsea midfielder Michael Ballack, has died after a quad-bike accident.

The accident happened in Troia, a peninsular off the coast of Setubal just south of Lisbon, close to the house of Ballack.

Following the crash, firefighters tried unsuccessfully to rescue Emilio near the Villas do mar estate.

Emilio is one of three children of Michael Ballack and Simone Lambe, who married in 2008 but divorced in 2012.

Emilio was born in 2002, a year after Louis, the eldest son, and was three years older than Ballack’s youngest, Jordi.

The full details of his accident are yet to be disclosed.
