James Gandolfini, who died of a heart attack in June, had his Rolex watch stolen within hours after his death, according to celebrity entertainment site TMZ.

According to an insurance form obtained by the site, someone stole a $3,000 (£1,900) Rolex from the actor's hotel room on the day he died.

The form reportedly states that there was no damage to the room, with a suggestion that someone may have stolen the item during the commotion after the actor's death.
