Police in Assam state in northeast India said on Saturday they recovered a stolen watch that belonged to Argentine football legend Diego Maradona.

Assam State Police Chief Bhaskar Jyoti Mahanta said the luxury Hublot watch signed by Maradona was recovered from the possession of a man after his arrest at his home in Sivasagar district in 350 kilometers (217 miles) east of Gauhati, the state capital.

Police said the man worked as a security guard at a company in Dubai that stores the belongings of the legendary Argentine athlete. He said the man stole the watch last week and returned to India a few days ago.

“An expensive Hublot watch … Maradona … Dubai … Assam Police.” Sounds like random words, doesn’t it? But today all of those words hit it off, telling a story of successful international cooperation between #DubaiPolice and @assampolice, ”Police Chief Mahanta tweeted.

The state’s top elected official, Himanta Biswa Sarma, said authorities would take legal action against the man.

Maradona, 60, died last year of a heart attack following brain surgery. He led Argentina to a 1986 World Cup victory and is considered one of the greatest players of all time.
