England captain Harry Kane wears £520,000 rainbow Rolex in Qatar at World Cup

England captain Harry Kane was pictured wearing a £520,000 rainbow Rolex as he arrived at the FIFA Stadium in Doha on Monday ahead of England’s World Cup victory over Iran.

It comes as FIFA finds itself embroiled in controversy over Qatar’s human rights record, in particular its ban on homosexuality.

Teams have been ordered not to wear OneLove armbands in support of LGBTQ+ communities, although German players protested by placing their hands over their mouths ahead of their game against Japan – a sign of silence.

Kane’s rainbow Rolex – potentially a reference to the rainbow pride flag – could be interpreted as a similar symbolic protest.

Instagram account Insane Luxury Life shared a photo of Kane wearing the watch, which was previously worn by Stormzy at the Brit Awards in 2020.

They captioned it with: ‘England captain @harrykane wears a rare @rolex Daytona ‘Rainbow’ 116595RBOW in 18k rose gold, one of the most sought after pieces on the market.

Kane suffered a knock to his right ankle after a clumsy challenge from Morteza Pouraliganji in England’s 6-2 win over Iran on Monday – the national team’s biggest win at the start of a major tournament.

The Spurs striker, who has a history of ankle problems, played for 25 minutes but was seen limping after the game and underwent a precautionary examination.

But after completing a lighter training session on Wednesday, England manager Gareth Southgate confirmed Kane would be fit to face the United States.

MailOnline revealed in September that Kane had hired a well-respected Spaniard, who works in Ontario, Canada, to help him with his well-documented ankle problems.

The pundit has worked wonders with Kane, who has been relatively injury-free for over two years after a history of nagging issues – particularly with his ankles.

Elorriaga Claraco, who studied at the University of Oviedo in Spain and McMaster University in Canada, works with Kane once a month outside Tottenham’s training center in Enfield.

The Football Association is aware of Kane’s contact with Elorriaga Claraco during the tournament.

Tottenham chief football officer Fabio Paratici is also in Doha and has been updated on the striker’s condition given Kane’s huge importance to the Premier League club.

Speaking on Wednesday, Kane’s team-mate Jordan Pickford allayed concerns over the Tottenham striker’s fitness: “I think he’s fine, a little sore but he’s fine and he’s been out with us on the grass.” He’s our captain, he’s been good. He is fine.’
