During the horrific Wembley events at the Euro 2020 final, F1 star Lando Norris’ £40,000 watch was stolen.
After England’s Euro 2020 final defeat to Italy on Sunday evening, F1 star Lando Norris was targeted.
After England’s Euro 2020 final defeat to Italy, F1 star Lando Norris had his £40,000 watch stolen. The McLaren driver was one of the lucky viewers inside Wembley Stadium on Sunday evening to witness the Three Lions play, but his night was cut short when he was attacked as he exited the stadium.
Prior to kick-off, there were chaotic scenes outside the stadium as fans without tickets forced their way in, leaving those inside unable to sit in their original seats.
The families of the players involved, including captain Harry Kane, John Stones, Raheem Sterling, and Harry Maguire, are said to have been upset as fans made their way into their section.
After the final whistle, the chaos continued as the 60,000 supporters inside Wenbley Stadium made their way home.
According to the Sun, a recent development in the events has now cast light on an incident involving Norris.
The 21-year-old was ambushed as he went to get into his £165,000 McLaren GT supercar after the game, after being grabbed by one fan and having his prototype Richard Mille watch torn off by another fan.
Norris posted a photo of himself at the game after the final buzzer sounded, but he didn’t mention the event.
“Lando was held and another robber snatched off his watch in a split second,” an eyewitness informed The Sun of what occurred to the F1 driver. Lando appeared to be in a state of disarray. All night, security had been a nightmare.”
Despite the fact that Norris has yet to remark about his watch being taken, McLaren has issued a statement saying that he was unharmed but “understandably rattled.”
