A watch stolen from the wrist of Barcelona star Robert Lewandowski has been recovered by police.
The incident happened on Thursday when the player arrived at the club’s training ground and began signing autographs.
A man approached and snatched the watch from the player’s wrist. Lewandowski climbed back in his car and gave chase but could not find the man.
Polish international Lewandowski joined Barcelona after eight years at Bayern Munich, where he won most honours in the European game, including the UEFA Champions League.
Police were called at 4.30pm and within an hour they had caught a 19-year-old man who was hiding in bushes near the stadium.
They also recovered the watch, reported by Spanish media to be a Patek Phillippe worth €70,000 ($70,300).
