Taxi driver returns silver medal left in his cab...
ATHENS, Greece (AP) -- A taxi driver returned a silver medal left in his cab by Dutch rower Simon Diederik, Olympics organizers said Wednesday.
Diederik left the medal, which he won Sunday, in a taxi on Monday evening.
After an announcement about the loss to all 5,000 taxis working that night, the medal was handed over to organizers and will be given to the athlete.
The driver will be given a gift for returning the medal, organizers said.
