French police have found the €300,000 watch stolen from the Paris hotel room of tennis star Rafael Nadal.
A barman has been arrested in connection with the theft.
Nadal was in Paris for the French Open, which he won on Monday for a record seventh time, beating Serbia’s Novak Djokovic.
Luxury watchmaker Richard Mille had lent the Spanish tennis champion the watch. It vanished sometime late Monday to early yesterday.
A police source said the watch was found last night along a railway track in the southern Paris suburb of Evry.
The arrested man is a 39-year-old barman who worked at the luxury hotel in Paris’ 8th district.
