London 2012 hockey player Hannah Macleod, from Maidenhead, has got her Olympic bronze medal back after Scotland Yard said it was posted anonymously to the England Hockey head office in Buckinghamshire.
Bronze medals belonging to Macleod and rower Alex Partridge were allegedly stolen along with their Team GB Olympic jackets as they partied at a London nightclub after a reception hosted by the Queen at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday to celebrate the achievements of the 2012 athletes.
A Scotland Yard spokesman said officers were holding on to the medal while they continue their inquiry but that they would reuniting Hannah with her medal shortly.
She was being kept fully informed of developments. The medals were taken after the pair joined fellow Olympians at the Mahiki nightclub in London's Mayfair.
Mr Partridge's jacket - minus his medal - was handed in to a north-west London police station on Thursday.
A 31-year-old man was arrested in connection with the thefts on Thursday and bailed until November 23.
Detective Chief Inspector James Harman said: "Alex's medal has yet to be traced, and he is understandably keen to be reunited with it as soon as possible."
Macleod, 28, had asked via Twitter for whoever took the medal to post it back to the hockey headquarters at Bisham Abbey.
On Wednesday she tweeted: "I'm not after punishment. If you picked up a Bronze Olympic medal that isn't yours pls just send anonymously back to GB hockey-Bisham Abbey."
