Spurs star Dele Alli held at knifepoint and beaten by robbers


Dele Alli was held at knifepoint and punched after robbers broke into his house during the early hours of Wednesday morning.

As Sportsmail exclusively revealed, the Tottenham and England midfielder was thumped in the face during the ordeal but did not suffer serious injury.

Two males wearing balaclavas broke into the back of Alli's north London property just after midnight on Tuesday night before threatening the Spurs star — who has been isolating with his brother Harry Hickford, their two partners and a long-term friend.

Following a scuffle, during which Alli suffered a minor facial injury, the two culprits took various items including jewellery and watches before fleeing.

Writing on Twitter after Sportsmail revealed the incident, Alli said: 'Thank you for all the messages. Horrible experience but we're all okay now. Appreciate the support.'

The player and his model girlfriend Ruby Mae, who is 23, have been together since early 2016. She was by his side at the Euros that summer and the 2018 World Cup in Russia before they split for a short time early last year. They were back together by last summer with Alli reportedly flying Ruby out to Madrid for the Champions League final between Tottenham and Liverpool at the start of June. As a youngster, Alli moved in with the Hickford family following a difficult upbringing.

Alli and his Spurs team-mates are expected to return to training at the start of next week as the Premier League work towards a June 12 restart date.

A police spokesman said: 'Police were called at approximately 00:35hrs on Wednesday, 13 May to reports of a robbery at a residential address in Barnet.

'Two males gained entry to the property and stole items of jewellery, including watches, before fleeing.

'One male occupant of the property, aged in his 20s, suffered a minor facial injury after being assaulted. He did not require hospital treatment.

'No arrests; enquiries into the circumstances continue.'
