RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) – Police say former Brazil coach Mario Zagallo was robbed at gunpoint early Tuesday morning in Rio de Janeiro.
Police say four gunmen intercepted the car carrying Zagallo, his wife and son in the Rio district of Botafogo.
They say that when the assailants saw Zagallo they abandoned their plan to steal the car and instead stole his wallet and gold chain. They also stole some of his son's personal belongings. Nothing was stolen from Zagallo's wife.
Police say no one was hurt.
