The village of Doddington in Cambridgeshire has been honouring its golden boy- paralympic medalist Jonnie Peacock, with a specially-painted golden post box.
Jonnie, who lost a leg to meningitis as a boy, lives in the village with his mum. His triumph in the 100 metres was one of the highlights of the Games. His mum Linda Roberts had a go at painting the box in front of villagers and children from the local school.
