Royal Mail : Bradley Wiggins Gold Medal Stamp

Hold the vans! Hard on the heels of the women’s rowing success Bradley Wiggins scores an Olympic gold medal in the men’s cycling time trial.
Royal Mail will have a Gold Medal stamp to celebrate Bradley’ gold medal win ready to buy by tomorrow. The fleet of 90 Royal Mail vehicles has been held back and 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.
Royal Mail will also paint a Post Box gold to celebrate his win and the commemorative stamps will be available tomorrow at the Post Office on Cleveland Street in Bradley’s home town of Chorley. An additional 4,700 post offices will receive the Gold Medal stamps within a week.
