MILAN, Italy (AFP) - Napoli forward Marek Hamsik has been robbed of a luxury Rolex watch by three masked men at gunpoint, according to Italian media reports Sunday.

ANSA news agency said Hamsik escaped uninjured from the attack which happened on Sunday following his side's scoreless home draw against Sampdoria in Italy's Serie A.

The report said Hamsik had momentarily stopped in his BMW X6 car on the motorway as he drove his wife to the airport after the game at the San Paolo stadium, and was approached by three masked men on scooters.

They smashed his car window before taking Hamsik's luxury watch after threatening him with a gun.
