A Ferrari owned by AC Milan striker M'Baye Niang sustained substantial damage on Sunday after veering off-road and hitting a tree in a high-speed collision, reports the Daily Mail.

According to French newspaper Le Parisien, the France U21 international was not driving the £200,000 super car at the time of the incident, and tweeted to say that he was unhurt following the accident, though this was later removed.

The Ferrari 458 spider, which can reach a top speed of 198mph, suffered damage to its bodywork at the front and back of the vehicle, and also set off the driver and passenger airbags from the impact of uprooting the tree.

Video footage later emerged in the aftermath of the mysterious crash, which shows just how lucky the 19-year-old forward was to come away from the incident completely unscathed.

Niang is currently back playing in his native France on loan at Ligue 1 side Montpellier, having been loaned out by AC Milan after his failure to score in 28 appearances for the Serie 'A' giants.

The teenager has previously attracted interest from the Premier League, and according to the Daily Mail, turned down opportunities to join Manchester City, Arsenal and Tottenham before moving to the San Siro from Caen in August 2012.
