From Royal Mail:
Royal Mail will have available by lunchtime tomorrow a Gold Medal stamp to celebrate Bradley Wiggins’ gold medal win in the Men’s Cycling Individual Time Trial Final
You can buy these stamps online now!
This is the first time Royal Mail has issued two next day stamps in one day and follows the earlier Gold Medal win by Helen Glover and Heather Stanning in the Women’s Pair Rowing final.
The stamps will be on sale in over 500 Post Office branches across the UK from around lunchtime tomorrow. You can also find your nearest Gold Medal Stamp Stockist here.
A fleet of 90 Royal Mail vehicles will deliver the stamps across the UK to over 500 Post Offices to be on sale by lunchtime tomorrow.
Bradley won Gold less than two weeks after becoming the first British rider to triumph in the Tour de France. He is now Britain’s most decorated Olympian with seven medals, including four Gold.
Bradley’s stamps will be available tomorrow at the Post Office on Cleveland Street in Bradley’s home town of Chorley. Royal Mail will also paint a Post Box gold to celebrate his win.
