Lando Norris, a Formula One driver, was mugged after the Euro 2020 final on Sunday evening, according to McLaren.
The 21-year-old was in attendance at Wembley Stadium when England lost on penalties to Italy, and the event was disrupted by ticketless fans swarming the stadium before kick-off, resulting in violent scenes.
Additionally, Bukayo Saka, Marcus Rashford, and Jadon Sancho were racially harassed on social media after missing spot-kicks in the shootout.
Norris’ watch was stolen in the midst of the turmoil in north-west London, and it has subsequently been labeled a “police matter.”
“[We] can confirm that Lando Norris was involved in an incident, following the Euro 2020 final match at Wembley, during which the watch he was wearing was removed,” McLaren stated in a statement.
“Lando was thankfully unharmed, but he is understandably shaken.”
“The team is behind Lando, and we’re confident that racing fans will join us in wishing him well at this weekend’s British Grand Prix.”
“Since this is now a police matter, we cannot comment further,” Norris posted on Instagram after the Euro 2020 final, “Kinda sad, but [love] you @england.” Norris finished third for McLaren at the Austrian Grand Prix earlier this month, matching his career-best result in F1.
After that race, the 21-year-old was named driver of the day, and he will compete in his home grand prix at Silverstone on Sunday.
