Former Italy International, Roberto Baggio was assaulted and robbed at gunpoint at his home in northern Italy while watching his country’s match against Spain in the Euro 2024 tournament on Thursday. 
 
With a gun butt and locked him and his family in a room while they stole jewellery, watches and cash, daily Il Corriere della Sera reported. 
 
Baggio was quoted as saying that he was lucky that the violence he suffered only resulted in a few stitches, bruises and a lot of fear and that he had overcome the fear.
 
57 year-old Baggio played for clubs including Juventus, AC Milan and Inter Milan and also played 56 times for Italy, scoring 27 goals, and is widely seen as one of his country’s all-time greats.
 
Italy lost to Spain 1-0 on Thursday and now must avoid defeat by Croatia to guarantee progression in the tournament.
