West Ham player robbed in Romford

Hart_726_2West Ham goalkeeper Joe Hart has been robbed by a gang of moped bandits in Romford.

The 30-year-old keeper had his smartphone, wallet and watch snatched by three scooter-riding thieves who pounced on him close to the club’s training ground. The Sun quotes a source close to the England keeper as saying it happened near a  ­petrol station shortly after he left West Ham’s training ground in Rush Green, near Romford, Essex.

A Sun source said: “There were three robbers on two bikes and they surrounded him as he got into his car and took his phone. I think they also got a  watch and a wallet.” Another added: “Joe wasn’t hurt but he was pretty shaken up. He’s a big powerful guy and it took some nerve to rob him. If it can happen to the safest pair of hands in England it can happen to anyone.  “He is relieved that he didn’t come to any serious harm.”

The robbery comes just two months after Hart’s £100,000 Range Rover was stolen from the driveway of his home in Bowden, Cheshire.
