Alistair Brownlee's Triathalon Gold is being commemorated - with both a stamp, and a golden postbox in his honour. The Royal Mail will paint one of its red post boxes gold in his hometown of Horsforth.

And this will be followed by the issue of a Gold Medal stamp, which will be on sale in over 500 Post Offices including one in neighbouring Pudsey.
