Former Arsenal striker has flown home from Brazil after his wife and children were burgled at knifepoint.

The 50-year-old, who has been working as a pundit for ITV at the World Cup, tweeted last night: ‘You won’t get away with it.’

Four hooded men armed with knives made their way into his north-west London home last night and held his wife and children hostage before making off with personal possessions.

One of the men held a knife to his wife’s throat and another threatened to cut off his childrens’ fingers, the Sun reports.

The newspaper reports one of the raiders shouted: ‘If you don’t tell us where the safe is we’ll cut off your kids’ fingers.’

Another added: ‘Punch her, punch her, kill her!’

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: ‘We are investigating an aggravated burglary at an address in north-west London after we were called at 9.20 last night.

‘Personal possessions were stolen. The suspects are described as four black men aged between 18 and 25, with London accents, wearing dark clothing and hoodies obscuring their faces.’

‘I would like to thank ITV for helping Ian to get home as quickly as possible.’
