Football: Thief tries to steal Lewandowski's watch

BARCELONA (REUTERS) – Barcelona striker Robert Lewandowski nearly had his €70,000 (S$100,000) watch stolen outside the club’s training ground Ciutat Esportiva on Thursday (Aug 18), Spanish newspaper Marca reported.

The 33-year-old Polish international was on his way to evening training when a person opened the passenger door of a car and took the watch as Lewandowski was greeting fans.

Police quickly arrested a suspect and Lewandowski got his watch back before participating in the practice session ahead of Sunday’s LaLiga game at Real Sociedad.

Lewandowski joined Barca for about €45 million last month from Bayern Munich after helping the German side win many trophies including eight Bundesliga titles and the Champions League.
