Two members of the German World Cup squad have been involved in a car accident at a driving event which left two others injured in northern Italy.
Benedikt Hoewedes and Julian Draxler were passengers in separate cars in the Mercedes event on a closed circuit.
One of the cars, with professional touring car driver Pascal Wehrlein at the wheel, struck two men near the team hotel, leaving one seriously hurt.
The footballers were not injured in the accident, and have resumed training.
The other car was being driven by Mercedes Formula One driver, Nico Rosberg.
Hoewedes and Draxler play for German Bundesliga side Schalke 04 and have been selected to represent their country in next month’s World Cup in Brazil.
