A watch worth 370,000 US dollars went missing from Rafael Nadal's hotel room hours after he clinched his seventh French Open singles title

Rafael Nadal had a 300,000-euro ($375,000) luxury watch stolen from the Paris hotel where he stayed with his parents during the French Open, police said Tuesday.

Nadal's parents noticed Tuesday morning that the watch, which was on loan from luxury watchmaker Richard Mille, had disappeared from their room in a hotel in Paris's upscale eighth arrondissement and reported it stolen, a police source said.

French newspaper reports said the company had lent Nadal the watch for the French Open, which the Spanish tennis sensation won for a record seventh time Monday, beating Serbia's Novak Djokovic. The Spaniard was wearing the watch after he defeated Djokovic in the grand slam final on Monday but found it missing when he woke up on Tuesday, the player's relatives told the police.
