I want to find the closest point on a contour to a given point in an image. I know cv2.pointPolygonTest gives the distance from a point to the closest contour edge. How to retrieve that point (coordinates) on the contour?

I am using Opencv-3.0.0 on Python 2.7.x, Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS.

Your help is much appreciated.

I was wondering if there is solution in the Opencv-Python bindings.
