Lizzy Yarnold's mum has backed calls to paint a postbox gold in Sevenoaks, Lizzy's hometown, to mark her daughters achievement and to help inspire Britain's future winners.
Around 43,000 people have signed a petition for the Royal Mail to paint the postbox for Yarnold, who won Britain's first gold medal at the Winter Olympics in women's skeleton.
Royal Mail painted postboxes in the hometowns of gold medalists during London 2012 Olympics, which they say was a "unique occasion" as the host nation.
Lizzy's mum, Judith, who is a teacher said:
It's about recognising the achievements of the Olympians who have put in so much effort to gain their achievements.They put in an amazing amount of work to get where they are and the public clearly want to recognise this by having gold postboxes."
