Help 156 1.6ts Manual gearbox, stuck in 3rd! Help!!

Hi folks

Started my Manual car in gear by accident this morning, it lurched forward as happens when one would do that. I restarted it and all was OK. I drove about 300yds through the village, no problem. BUT I when I got to third gear it stuck, and wouldn't come out of gear.

I coasted to the side of the road, and after a bit of fiddling with the lever got neutral. But I still can only get third now though.

Its a manual, 84k 02 facelift model. No gearbox whine or any issue with the clutch or box.

What have i done? I couldn't have killed the box by starting the car in gear?
