McLaren Formula 1 driver Lando Norris was involved in an incident following the Euro 2020 final at Wembley in which his watch was stolen.
The British driver watched the match, which saw England lose to Italy on penalties, inside Wembley stadium on Sunday night.
However upon leaving, was caught up in an incident which saw his £40,000 Richard Mille watch taken, leaving the 21-year-old “unharmed” but “shaken” according to his team.
“McLaren Racing can confirm that Lando Norris was involved in an incident, after the Euro 2020 final match at Wembley, during which the watch he was wearing was taken.
“Thankfully, Lando was unharmed but he is understandably shaken. The team is supporting Lando and we are sure that racing fans will join us in wishing him all the best for the British Grand Prix this weekend.
“As this is now a police matter we cannot comment further.”
The match saw fans clash with security before kick-off, in which a small number of fans were able to gain entry to the stadium without tickets.
There were also disturbances following the game which saw England lose on penalties, leading to racist comments directed at Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka.
The behaviour has been widely condemned, with Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton calling it “disgusting” in a social media post.
“So much was running through my mind as a watched the final moments of the match last night. On one hand I was so proud of how far we have come. To be in the final and with such a diverse team is a huge achievement we should all be proud of,” wrote Hamilton.
“But as the players stepped up to take the penalties I was worried. The pressure to deliver is felt by every sportsperson but when you are a minority representing your country this is a layered experience. Success would feel like a double victory, but a miss feels like a two-fold failure when its compounded with racist abuse.
“I so badly wanted that win like all of you but for me it was for much more than winning the Euros, it was a much bigger picture. However, the disgusting behaviour by the few, shows how much work that still needs to be done.
“We must work towards a society that doesn’t require black players to prove their value or place in society only through victory,” Hamilton added. “Ultimately everyone on the England team should be so proud of their achievement and how they represented us.”
