A day after making history by winning his seventh French Open, Rafael Nadal awoke Tuesday to discover a watch worth €300,000 ($374,000) had been stolen.
The watch, which Nadal was wearing after his victory Monday, was lent to the Spanish tennis sensation by the luxury brand Richard Mille for the competition.
Nadal discovered the watch was missing when he woke up at his central Paris hotel, according to Le Parisien. The theft was reported as soon as it was discovered and police were investigating.
Nadal defeated Serbia's Novak Djokovic in four sets in the rain-hit final, which saw the Spaniard eclipse the six titles of Bjorn Borg.
With play having been held over after persistent rain Sunday, it was the Spaniard who prevailed as he recorded a 6-4, 6-3, 2-6, 7-5 victory.
A tearful Nadal collapsed to the clay, before clambering up to the players' balcony to hug his family and coaches.
During the presentation ceremony, as the rain again fell, Nadal told the crowd in French that Roland Garros was "the most important tournament for me."
Djokovic thanked the crowd for braving the rain and the delay, and sportingly admitted that Nadal "was the better player."
