Roma midfielder Bryan Cristante fought off two thieves who tried to steal his Rolex watch yesterday.
Corriere dello Sport writes how Cristante was the victim of an attempted robbery near the Olimpico while he was in his car.
He was approached by two men wearing full-face helmets, who threatened him as they tried to take the watch from his wrist.
The 25-year-old managed to get out of his car, scare off the criminals and call for help, alerting an off-duty police officer who helped him file a report.
Cristante has played 21 times for Roma this season, scoring one goal and providing two assists.
