The parents of Welsh soccer star John Hartson have got their stolen car back after offering one of his shirts as a reward.
A signed John Hartson shirt was on offer to whoever found the car
When his mother, Diana Hartson, said she was willing to give one of her son's signed football tops to anyone who could help her trace the vehicle, the theft received UK media coverage.
The blue K-reg Sierra Sapphire has since been discovered in a supermarket car park in Bridgend.
The Hartsons are now waiting for South Wales Police to conclude their investigation into its disappearance.
Officers are examining the car for any potential clues as to who was responsible for taking it.
It was stolen from Caswell bay car park near their home in Swansea eight days ago.
Mrs Hartson and her husband Cyril had given up hope of ever seeing it again, so had just bought a new one.
They use the car every day to visit her 78-year-old mother as they shop and care for her because she has arthritis.
A police spokeswoman said they would be informing Mrs Hartson of who reported the whereabouts of the car as soon as they had concluded their inquiries.
