The home of Italy’s 1982 World Cup hero Paolo Rossi was burgled during his funeral service on Saturday, local reports say.
The footballer’s funeral was held in the north-eastern city of Vicenza after he died on Thursday at the age of 64.
Italy’s Ansa news agency said Rossi’s wife, Federica Cappelletti, returned home from the ceremony to find their home in Tuscany had been broken into.
A watch belonging to Rossi and cash were among the items reported stolen.
The break-in has been reported to the police and an investigation is under way.
Rossi and his family lived in a farmhouse in Poggio Cennina, a resort overlooking the Val d’Ambra southeast of Florence, where Rossi ran an organic farming company.
