James DeGale's Olympic medal and MBE stolen during Euro 2020 final

Former two-time world champion James DeGale has reported his Olympic gold medal and MBE were stolen on Sunday night.

DeGale, Britain's first fighter to win Olympic gold and a professional world title, shared the news on his Instagram account.

"My parent's house got burgled last night whilst our boys were trying to bring it home!

"He took two of my prized possessions, MY OLYMPIC GOLD MEDAL, AND MY MBE.

"They are worthless to anyone other than me, and they are two achievements that I prize from my boxing career.

"I am gutted and need my medals back. Can anyone help by reporting any information you have? Please share far and wide," he added.

DeGale was part of Team GB's 2008 squad which also included Billy Joe Saunders, David Price and Kal Yafai.

The Londoner beat Cuba's Emilio Correa to win middleweight gold in Beijing.

"Chunky" turned over in 2008 and signed a deal with Hall of Fame promoter Frank Warren before going on to work with Eddie Hearn, Al Haymon and Warren again.

DeGale held the IBF super middleweight title on two occasions, the first being in 2015 against Andre Dirrell and reclaimed the red-and-gold strap by avenging his defeat to Caleb Truax.

He also fought Badou Jack in a dramatic fight which ended in a draw and left DeGale with a missing front tooth.

There were also epic rivalries against George Groves and Chris Eubank Jr. as well as wins over Lucian Bute, Rogelio Molina and Paul Smith. He retired in 2019.
