Police recover Lewandowski’s watch, stolen while signing autographs

Police said they had recovered Robert Lewandowski's watch, stolen as the star striker signed autographs before a Barcelona training session.

The incident occurred on Thursday afternoon when the 33-year-old striker, who joined from German club Bayern Munich in July, arrived at training and stopped in front of fans for autographs, Catalan police told AFP Friday.

A young man approached and snatched the watch from the player's wrist.

Spanish media reported the watch was a Patek Phillippe worth 70,000 euros ($70,300) and that Lewandowski climbed back in his car and gave chase but lost the thief.
