Formula One driver Lando Norris had his watch stolen at Wembley after England’s Euro 2020 final defeat to Italy.

According to The Sun, the watch is a Richard Mille RM 11-03 costing £40,000.

McLaren said the 21-year-old Briton was unharmed but shaken after the “incident”.

The team said in a statement: “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 news of the theft is the latest off-field incident to overshadow the Wembley final, with the security operation around the match being widely criticised.

The Football Association announced on Monday it will conduct an investigation into how people were able to gain access into the stadium without tickets.

There were reports of ticketless fans being inside the stadium for the whole match, with genuine ticket-holders being afraid to confront people occupying their seats.

The FA said the review would be conducted alongside the police, the Greater London Authority, the Safety Advisory Group and tournament stakeholders.

The governing body defended the level of stewarding and security in place for the match, saying it “exceeded the requirements for the match” and was “greater than any other previous event at Wembley Stadium”.

A spokesperson added: “The behaviour of the people who illegally forced their way into the stadium was unacceptable, dangerous and showed total disregard for the safety and security protocols in place.

“No steward or security staff should be subjected to this type of behaviour and we thank them for their support on the night.”
