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.
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.
Unsurprisingly , but don’t buy them there. You can purchase the stamps direct from Royal Mail for the face value and they have an international version available too.
