Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane may not have been able to wear the OneLove captain’s armband at the 2022 World Cup, but he has been spotted by SportBible to be supporting the LGBTQ+ cause in a more subtle way, with a rainbow-coloured watch.

England started their World Cup campaign with a comprehensive 6-2 win over Iran on Monday, with goals from Jude Bellingham, Raheem Sterling, Marcus Rashford, Jack Grealish, and a Bukayo Saka double.

It was a great performance all round from the Three Lions, and Spurs star Harry Kane garnered praise for his overall link-up play, contributing two assists in the game. England then followed this result up with a rather uninspiring 0-0 against the USA last night.

There was a lot of talk in the build-up to the tournament about nations pledging to wear the OneLove captain’s armband, with Harry Kane among those (Mirror) determined to use it as an opportunity to protest the fact homosexuality is prohibited in Qatar.

FIFA ultimately banned teams from adorning the armband (ESPN), which has angered many fans and those involved in the sport. England were one of seven countries who confirmed they would no longer wear the armband (Sky Sports).

The announcement that the FA had decided to make a U-turn on the controversial matter was delivered just hours before kick-off on Monday. That didn’t stop Harry Kane from displaying a small show of solidarity though.

Images have surfaced of Kane sporting a very rare, very expensive Rolex watch known as the Daytona Rainbow.

The watch “is set with 36 baguette-cut rainbow sapphires on bezel, 56 brilliant-cut diamonds on the case and 11 baguette-cut rainbow coloured sapphires as hour markers,” according to Insane Luxury Life. It is also claimed to be worth around £520,000.

As you can guess from the name and the description, the watch is emblazoned with the colours of the rainbow, and is presumed to be Harry Kane’s own way of backing the OneLove cause.

It may only be a small gesture, but it’s a start. I think we were all very disappointed the FA decided not to push ahead with plans to wear the OneLove armband, and I’m sure Harry Kane was just as frustrated as the rest of us. But this is a nice, little show of support in one of the few ways he was allowed to do so.
