Unhappy New ignition key stuck

Hi help please !!
I have a 2002 petrol, manual, 2.4 Santa Fe

It only had one key when I got it so I ordered a replacement key online -uncoded and uncut. When it arrived I got it cut - looked good. Before getting it coded I thought I would just test the cutting. Opened doors ok so tried it in ignition - fitted and turned engine over - did not start as not coded I presume.

However, when I tried to get the key out again it would not come out.

Could this be to do with it's transponder not being coded? Anyone know anyway I can get it out??

Any help gratefully received !

I would try putting a little oil and then wiggling it out , are you able to turn the tumbler still , maybe it's the tumbler spring that has broken and it can't turn back far enough to release the key?

Since it's a new key, I'd pull on the steering wheel to both sides while trying to remove the key.
