The son of former Chelsea midfielder, Michael Ballack, Emilio Ballack, is dead.
Portuguese TV channel, TVI24 reports that Emilio, 18, was involved in the accident near the family’s holiday home in the early hours of Thursday morning, where firefighters tried to rescue him near the Villas do Mar estate in Portugal.
Emilio died after being crushed by a quad-bike near the family’s holiday home.
The tragedy happened in Troia, close to the house of Ballack, who retired as a professional footballer back in 2012.
The quad-bike was created to be used on public roads.
Emilio is one of the three children of Ballack.
Ballack married long-term girlfriend, Simone Lambe in 2008 before the couple divorced four years later.
The former Germany international is widely regarded as one of the best German players of all time and is a Premier League and FA Cup winner with Chelsea.
