A footballer was robbed at knifepoint when thieves rammed into his car, just days after suspected gunmen allegedly threatened Andy Carroll.

AFC Bournemouth midfielder Jordon Ibe, 20, had his watch stolen after his car was hit near Surrey Quays tube station in south London.

The attack came after West Ham United striker Carroll, 27, was the victim of an alleged attempted robbery as he drove home on November 2.

Scotland Yard said detectives were looking into the attack on Ibe, which took place around 1.45pm on November 6.

The Sun reported that his attackers took off with his £25,000 Rolex.

A Met Police spokesman said: "One of the suspects threatened the victim with a knife before stealing his watch. The victim was not injured.

"At this early stage, officers are investigating whether the suspects intentionally collided with the victim's car."
