Winners to get gold post box

Have your say

POST boxes in South Yorkshire could enjoy a break from their traditional shade of red if homegrown Olympic heroes scoop medals.

Royal Mail has promised to celebrate every British gold medal at the Olympics and Paralympics by repainting a post box in the winner’s home city, where possible.

A victory for heptathlete Jess Ennis would mobilise a team of painters to transform one of Sheffield’s boxes within days of her win.
