Cross-Canada runner Jamie McDonald from Gloucester, who was mugged in Banff early on New Year's Day, has found the bag he thought stolen.
Jamie, who is fundraising for sick children's charities, thought he had lost his money and the video of his adventure but it was found near where he was attacked.
I’m physically fine and was obviously very shaken up, but the support has been incredible.
I would like to thank you all again, especially the people of Banff, who’ve shown me the most incredible hospitality, and as I told a journalist here, I’d like to say that this doesn’t affect my thoughts about Canada one bit – I’ve had the best experiences here and the world-famous Canadian hospitality has been proved to be anything but a stereotype.
Jamie McDonald from Gloucester who's running unaided across Canada says he's on his feet again after being beaten up on New Year's Eve.
