Jenson Button and his wife Jessica Michibata have been robbed while on holiday in the south of France, a spokesperson for the McLaren driver has confirmed.

The couple were renting a villa with some friends but were left "unsurprisingly shaken" although "unharmed", when they woke to find jewellery stolen including Jessica's engagement ring.

The Sun reported on Thursday that the Buttons were "gassed in their sleep" and Jenson's spokesperson revealed "this has become a growing problem in the region".

"Jenson, Jessica and friends were on holiday in a rented villa," the spokesperson said.

"Two men broke into the property whilst they all slept and stole a number of items of jewellery including, most upsettingly, Jessica's engagement ring.

"The police have indicated that this has become a growing problem in the region with perpetrators going so far as to gas their proposed victims through the air conditioning units before breaking in.

"Whilst unharmed, everyone involved is unsurprisingly shaken by the events."
