Who leaves a $373,000 watch unattended in a hotel room?!?
Rafael Nadal, that's who!
After winning the French Open on Monday the Spanish tennis champ's ritzy timepiece loaned to him by luxury watchmaker Richard Mille mysteriously disappeared from his posh Parisian hotel!
However, this story has a happy ending because on Tuesday police tracked down the thief, a barman at the hotel, who confessed to letting himself into Rafa's room with his own magnetic key card.
Shady! Stupid, but shady!
Upon hearing the news, Nadal praised the police, adding:
"I have nothing to hold against the hotel. They have always treated me well when I have stayed there over the past eight years and I will be come back next year."
Word of advice: store your fancy baubles in the safe. That's what it's there for!
