Dele Alli robbed by masked knife-wielding raiders in his £2m home

England football star, Dele Alli, was beaten and robbed by knife-wielding raiders who burst into his home early yesterday.

The 24-year-old Spurs midfielder was punched in the mouth by the masked bandits and ordered to hand over valuables.

At the time of the robbery, Dele is said to have been playing pool with six pals and girlfriend Ruby Mae.

After attacking Dele, the raiders took two expensive watches from the star and jewellery belonging to model girlfriend Ruby, also 24.

One of Dele’s friends was also hurt after putting up a fight during the robbery in Hadley Wood, Herts.

The two blaggers forced their way into the £2 million detached house at 12.30am.
