Henley based rower Alex Partridge has said he is "very upset" after losing his Olympic bronze medal during a night out in London.

His medal was inside a blazer stolen in the early hours of Wednesday morning, as he was "dancing away" with team mates after attending a Buckingham Palace reception.

Hockey player Hannah Macleod was also present and reported on Twitter that her medal was stolen as well, though the Metropolitan Police have only been contacted by Partridge so far.
