Tottenham and England midfielder, Dele Alli has spoken out after armed robbers stormed his home, held him at knifepoint, and punched him in the face. The robbery incident occurred during the early hours of Wednesday at his £2m mansion in North London.
The 24-year-old was in a room with long-time partner Ruby Mae, his adopted brother Harry, Harry’s girlfriend, and another male friend when masked raiders burst into his north London property at 12.30am.
They reportedly punched the Spurs midfielder in the mouth and assaulted another man before they made away with various items including jewellery and watches. The football star has now taken to Twitter to thank those who shared messages of support to him.
Dele’s property is covered by CCTV and the footage has reportedly been passed on to the police, who have opened an investigation.
The raid comes just two months after four masked robbers armed with knives and machetes broke into the home of Dele’s Spurs teammate Jan Vertonghen in Hampstead, North London.
