[update: turns out it was the bartender wot did it. Police have nicked said villain and Rafa has his watch back. Happy endings all around!]
Original story follows: whilst we’ve been off having an overseas sojourn (which, dear reader, explains the silence around here the past few days), Rafael Nadal has been having his own adventures.
He’s moved swiftly from the elation of winning the French Open to the despair of ‘losing’ a second RM027 special lucky watch from Richard Mille.
This one went walkabout from his hotel room, allegedly. Although apparently not via a break-in, according to French Police.
Hmm. Look out for a chamber-maid driving a Ferrari once they’ve cashed in this $500,000 limited edition piece (50 only made).
