A triumphant judo star was forced to put Commonwealth gold celebrations on hold after temporarily losing her medal.
Sarah Adlington, who won the women's +78kg final said she initially thought one of her team mates was playing a joke on her but soon found out that no one was hiding it and the medal was missing.
The 27-year old said: "When we were getting back into the village we went through security so I put my medal in its box and put it through."
She added: "When I saw the box at the other end my medal wasn't in it but I thought someone was just messing about and having a little joke - it's the kind of thing I like to do so I expect it back to me."
When the penny finally dropped that she wasn't being pranked, Adlington went back to the athletes' security entrance and after a panicked search staff eventually found the medal stuck in the x-ray machine.
Adlington said: "It could've been there for days but lucky they found it and we're reunited. It just fell into some little space and wasn't easily visible."
