Ian Wright said his family are "safe" as he arrived home from Brazil, adding: "All I want to say, really, is that my missus, my girls, everyone's safe. The police are trying to get on doing what they are doing. She's feeling good that I am back."
Police are investigating an aggravated burglary at what is believed to be the home of ITV football analyst Ian Wright.
Wright's north-west London house was reportedly burgled last night, with his wife and two children held at knifepoint during the raid.
A Scotland Yard statement said: "We are investigating an aggravated burglary at an address in north-west London after we were called at 9.20 last night.
"Personal possessions were stolen. The suspects are described as four black men aged between 18 and 25, with London accents, wearing dark clothing and hoodies obscuring their faces."
Football analyst Ian Wright last night tweeted "You won't get away with it!" in what may have been a message to the men who reportedly burgled his home while holding his family at knifepoint.
The Sun reports that Wright's manager Steve Kutner said: “It was a terrifying ordeal. They marched Ian’s wife from room to room."
He also thanked ITV for returning him home from Brazil immediately after he learnt of the incident.
Former England international and ITV football analyst Ian Wright has apparently flown home from the World Cup in Brazil with reports suggesting his wife and children were burgled at knifepoint in London.
