England's Ian Wright 'leaves Brazil over robbery'

19 June 2014, 12:40

London -Former England striker Ian Wright flew home from the World Cup in Brazil after his wife and children were held at knifepoint in a burglary, reports said Thursday.

It is understood four men armed with knives broke into Wright's London home and held his wife and children before stealing personal possessions.

The 50-year-old pundit, who won fame as a striker for Arsenal, has been acting as an analyst at the World Cup for ITV.

Police said they were investigating an aggravated burglary at an address in north-west London.

"Personal possessions were stolen. The suspects are described as four black men aged between 18 and 25, with London accents, wearing dark clothing and hoodies obscuring their faces," a police spokesman said.

Wright tweeted "You won't get away with it!" in an apparent reference to the burglary.
