Three of England captain Harry Kane’s children have been injured in a car crash in Germany, it was reported on Thursday night.

The crash is said to have happened when a Renault collided with an oncoming Mercedes van as it tried to turn onto a motorway slip road in Schäftlarn, Bavaria at 5.15pm on Monday, the German newspaper Bild reported.

That day, the 30-year-old flew back to Britain with Bayern Munich ahead of the team’s Champions League clash at Arsenal on Tuesday night.

The footballer’s children Louis, three, Vivienne, five, and Ivy, seven, were passengers in the van and sustained superficial injuries, the newspaper said.

His fourth, Henry, was born in August last year.

They are said to have been taken to a nearby hospital in an ambulance.

A spokesman for Kane said: “They are fine and only went to hospital for a routine check-up.”

Bild reported the Renault was being driven by a 20-year-old woman travelling with a three-year-old child and two adults aged 43 and 48, while a 24-year-old German woman was behind the wheel of the Mercedes van.

The crash caused the Renault to skid on the road before slamming into a Land Rover and coming to a halt.

All eight passengers involved suffered minor injuries and were treated at local hospitals.

At the time of the crash, the striker had just landed in London ahead of the first leg of Bayern’s quarter-final clash against Arsenal.

He scored his side’s second goal in a 2-2 draw as he made his first club appearance in England since leaving Tottenham Hotspur for Bayern in the summer in a £100 million deal.

Daniel Buck, the, Hohenschäftlarn Volunteer Fire Department chief, told the BBC: “The cars had a lot of damage – all of the cars. The first thing that we were seeing was a lot of injured people from all the cars.

“The good news was nobody had really strong injuries, more minor injuries, like they have pain in the neck from the head up, normally typical for a car accident.

“Thank God nobody was really injured. It was really lucky for all the people.”
