Cristiano Ronaldo is desperate to get back to Turin to meet up with his Juventus team-mates for training.

The Portuguese superstar has been in quarantine with partner Georgina Rodriguez and his family during the coronavirus crisis in Madeira.

However, Ronaldo, 35, is reportedly stuck in his homeland because his private plane is grounded in Madrid because of travel restrictions in Spain.

The Juventus forward bought the Gulfstream G200 twin-engine jet in 2015 for £20million. And it's worth every penny, as you'll see here.

Originally named the 'Astra Galaxy', the G200 is capable of reaching a top speed of 560mph.

That means it'll take Ronaldo roughly six hours and 25 minutes to fly from Funchal Airport in Madeira, Portugal to Turin-Caselle in Italy - when he can finally set off.

Its range is up to 3,910 miles with four passengers in tow, so it's ideal for quick flights from Spain to either Italy to Portugal.

But the G200 offers a generous seating configuration and can fit as many as eight to 10 passengers for one flight

After its first flight in 1997 was followed by certification from the US and Israeli aviation agencies in 1998, the G200 was made available in 1999.

It was something of a rarity though, with only 250 ever made - making Ronaldo's purchase that even more exclusive.

The final production G200 rolled off the production line in 2011 when the G250 started to gain popularity.

So, it's vintage!

As you can imagine, and what £20m buys you, the G200 is filled with features that'll make flying in it a luxury.
