Koke: Atlético player robbed at gunpoint in Madrid - report

Spain midfielder Jorge Resurrección 'Koke' was robbed at gunpoint while at the wheel of his car in Madrid on Thursday, according to a report in El Mundo.

The publication says the incident occurred at about 19:00 as the Atlético Madrid star was entering an underground car park in the city's Chamberí district.

The robber is said to have approached Koke's vehicle as he wound down his window to take a ticket at the barrier, before holding a gun to the 25-year-old's head and telling him: "Give me your watch".

The footballer handed over the watch, which is valued at around 70,000 euros, with the assailant then driving away on a motorcycle.

Koke immediately contacted local police to report the attack.
