McLaren F1 driver Lando Norris was mugged after the Euro 2020 final which saw Italy defeat England on penalties at Wembley on Sunday night as his team-issued McLaren watch was stolen.
Norris was about to depart in his McLaren car, which was parked in the stadium’s official car park when he was attacked by two men with his watch worth £40,000 taken from him.
McClaren announced that their driver was “unharmed but understandably shaken” in a statement as the BBC reports the incident is being investigated by police.
After attending the Euro 2020 Final at Wembley last night, Lando Norris was robbed while getting into his McLaren GT.
He was left “unharmed,” but his $100,000 custom Richard Mille watch was stolen.

Norris, who is currently fourth in the F1 world championship standings heading into the British Grand Prix this weekend, was a guest in a corporate box at Wembley.
More than 50 arrests were made at Wembley on Sunday with supporters fighting one another as well as breaches into the stadium from those without a ticket prior to kick-off.
