BERLIN (AFP) - Borussia Dortmund's Bayern Munich-bound star striker Robert Lewandowski has fallen foul of pranksters after all four tyres were stolen from his Porsche, which was also damaged.

Dortmund are at Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt on Tuesday in the German Cup quarter-finals, but the Poland star's car problems came after he scored twice in his side's 5-1 league win at Werder Bremen last Saturday.

Reports in the German media say the 25-year-old had the tyres stolen from his Porsche Cayenne GTS, which was parked outside his Dortmund home, with only bricks left to keep the car off the ground.

The car was tipped forward during the prank, badly damaging the front brakes.
