Two British athletes have medals stolen
Two Olympians have had their medals stolen during a night out after leaving a Buckingham Palace reception with Queen Elizabeth II to honour British athletes who took part in this summer’s Games.
Rower Alex Partridge and hockey player Hannah Macleod took to Twitter to publicise the search for their missing Olympic bronze medals, which disappeared while they were at a club in Mayfair, central London, in the early hours of Wednesday.
Partridge, 31, said both his Olympic blazer and medal were stolen and asked for the items to be returned.
He and Team GB also tweeted a photograph of a man whom they believe may have information about what happened.
