Golden Postboxes in Wimbledon
To mark Sophie Hosking's gold medal winning performance, Royal Mail has painted a post box on Worple Road, Wimbledon, gold. Sophie won the Olympic Gold for Women's Lightweight Double Sculls Rowing. A second postbox has been painted in Somerset Road in honour of Andy Murray's gold medal after he won the Men's Single Tennis event. For every Team GB gold medal won at London 2012 by Olympians and Paralympians, Royal Mail have pledged to paint a red post box gold in their home town.
