As well as his MBE, awarded in 2000 for services to football, the robbers took several valuable watches, including one given to him by Arsenal in 1998 when the club won the league and FA Cup double.

Wright was working as a World Cup analyst in Brazil but flew back to the UK as soon as he learned of the incident.
