Roma defender Philippe Mexes is recovering from a terrifying ordeal after armed robbers stole his car with his young daughter in the back seat.
The French international returned to his home in Axa-Casal Palocco with his family at 11.50pm last night after eating out in Rome.
But just after wife Carla and four-year-old son Enzo got out of the car, two armed men confronted the Giallorossi ace.
After a scuffle, the thieves escaped with Mexes' Mercedes, unaware that his two-year-old daughter Eva was still asleep in the back seat.
Mexes immediately called the police and a desperate search began for the car in the surrounding area.
Fortunately, the vehicle was found abandoned in Piazza Eschilo in Rome with Eva unharmed and a relieved Mexes was reunited with his daughter.
