Gold medallists are first class

GOLD medallist cyclist Bradley Wiggins and rowing winners Helen Glover and Heather Stanning really are first class – with the Royal Mail stamps to prove it.

The triumphant Team GB athletes’ wins are being celebrated with two special edition stamps.

Royal Mail, which is producing the stamps within a day, will also paint a mailbox gold in their home towns. No doubt users will be hoping for super fast delivery.
