Emma Raducanu’s stalker handed five-year restraining order

A stalker who walked 23 miles to the home of British tennis star Emma Raducanu, taking her father’s shoe as a souvenir, has been handed a five-year restraining order.

Amrit Magar, 35, was last month found guilty of stalking the 19-year-old US Open champion between 1 November and 4 December last year following a trial at Bromley Magistrates’ Court.

The court heard the former delivery driver went to the world number 12’s home on three separate dates, loitered outside, left unwanted gifts and cards and stole property from the porch.

On one occasion, he left a bouquet of flowers with a note reading “nothing to say but you deserve love”, while on another he drew a map to show the “23 miles” he had walked from his home.

Magar, originally from Nepal, was arrested after the British number one’s father Ian was alerted by a doorbell camera, finding his trainer had been taken from the porch.

On Wednesday, District Judge Sushil Kumar handed Magar, from Harrow, northeast London, a five-year restraining order banning him from contacting Raducanu or her parents, coming within a mile of their street and attending any sports ground, stadium or training facility where she is in competition or attending to train.

He was also sentenced to an 18-month community order, including 200 hours of unpaid work and an eight-week curfew between 9pm and 6am monitored by an electronic tag.
