‘He was left shaken’ – Amidst the chaos after the Euro cup final, 21-year-old F1 star Lando Norris was mugged of his $55,000 watch at Wembley as he approached his $230k McLaren supercar after the match

A lot of things went wrong in the Euro 2020 final. To begin with F1 Star Lando Norris had his watch taken from him in an incident outside Wembley after the Euro 2020 final. It was complete chaos as 2,500 ticketless, drunken thugs stormed the stadium. The McLaren driver was mugged after the game as he approached his $228,500 McLaren supercar. The 21-year-old was ‘understandably shaken’ as one robber grabbed him and held him still while the other ripped off his valuable Richard Mille RM 11-03 timepiece. It is understood that his unique Richard Mille RM 11-03 timepiece was well worth nearly $55,400.

A witness told the Sun: ‘Lando was held and another ­robber pulled off his watch in a split second. Lando looked pretty shaken up. Security had been a nightmare all night. A McLaren team spokesman also commented on the incident and confirmed the mishap, ‘McLaren Racing can confirm that Lando Norris was involved in an incident, after the Euro 2020 final match at Wembley, during which the watch he was wearing was taken. Thankfully, Lando was unharmed but he is understandably shaken.’

Something like this happening to a prominent person wasn’t the most shocking part of the day. There were several troubling facts reported such as fan violence, ticketless supporters storming the stadium and bypassing security in shocking scenes. Players’ families were caught up in skirmishes, children were    left in tears, a female security guard was trampled and a disabled entrance stormed. Fans that paid a hefty sum of roughly $1300 to enjoy the game ended disappointed after finding mobs in their seats refusing to budge. Security sources estimate thousands broke in without tickets.

Lee, of Macclesfield, said: “I’ve never felt so scared or ashamed as I was at Wembley at what should have been a great night. The ­stewards and police completely lost control — to call it horrendous shambles is a complete understatement. As I went through the turnstile, a bloke in an England shirt tried to squeeze in with me. They were all doing it.” This resulted in the police making 86 arrests on Sunday, including 53 at Wembley, for drunk and disorderly conduct and criminal damage. A total of 19 officers received injuries.
