Olympic and Commonwealth boxing champion Nicola Adams has been the victim of burglary.
The thieves struck at a relative’s home in Leeds.
Thieves broke into the property in the Halton area of Leeds at about 8am on Wednesday and drove off with two of Nicola’s cars - one of which contained a red Team GB 2012 holdall and a Louis Vuitton overnight bag.
Among other items taken were three pairs of boxing boots, including the pair she wore in the Commonwealth Games and three pairs of the ‘Winning’ brand boxing gloves were taken.
Nicola’s father lives in Huddersfield.
Personalised clothing and gear stolen included gloves - a winning blue 12oz velcro strap pair - shorts and vest she was due to compete in and an Omega Seamaster watch with diamonds around the face bought as a present to mark her victory at 2012 Olympics.
She said: “These items would mean very minimal to anyone else but are of sentimental value to me. I would be very grateful for the return of my car and stolen belongings, some of which were gifts to me following my much-recognised wins for England and Great Britain as well as personalised items meant for my next national match.
The cars stolen were a matt grey Hyundai Veloster Turbo, registration VL08STR, and a silver Ford Focus TDCi, registration YH09DLU.
