The athletic inmate at Sion jail completed his escape by stealing a car he found nearby which had the keys left in the ignition, police in the Valais canton said.
The 22-year-old Tunisian, who was in custody for alleged theft and handling stolen goods, was later tracked down in a neighbouring canton about 40 kilometres away.
He was remanded after being treated for leg injuries, police said.
