Team GB sprinter Bianca Williams has received an apology from the Met Police after she and her partner were pulled over in their car in a stop-and-search.
Ms Williams’s three-month-old son was also in the car on Saturday when they were stopped in Maida Vale.
The Met has referred itself to the police watchdog after Ms Williams accused the force of racial profiling.
Met Commissioner Dame Cressida Dick told a committee of MPs officers had visited Ms Williams to apologise.
A video after Ms Williams was pulled over in her Mercedes with her partner, international 400m-runner Ricardo dos Santos, apparently showing them being dragged from the car, was posted online by former Olympic medallist Linford Christie.
Ms Williams has said she believes officers racially profiled her and dos Santos, when they were handcuffed and separated from their three-month-old son.
Despite two reviews by the force’s directorate of professional standards, Dame Cressida said the Met has found no misconduct by its officers.
However, because of the public interest in the case, the force has referred itself to the Independent Office for Policing Conduct (IOPC).
Earlier, Dame Cressida told the Home Affairs Select Committee: “We apologised yesterday to Ms Williams and I apologise again for the distress this stop clearly caused her.
“I think all of us watching could empathise with somebody who is stopped in a vehicle, who has a young child in the back, who does not probably know what exactly is going on, and is subsequently found, together with her partner, not to be carrying anything illicit.”
