Roma full-back John Arne Riise had his apartment in Oslo burgled and all his medals stolen.

Included in the haul was his coveted Champions League winner's medal, which he earned with Liverpool in 2005 after helping the Reds defeat AC Milan in Istanbul.

"I am truly sorry," he explained to Aftenposten.

"That medal is the most important of my career, I struggled and worked all my life for it, and now it is no more. I'd rather it had been my TV."

"I don't think a medal like that is easy to sell on the market. I hope they decide to return the stolen property," he concluded.
