The Royal Mail is producing a stamp to celebrate long-jumper Greg Rutherford's victory - winning Britain's 13th gold medal of the 2012 London Games.
On Saturday, Milton Keynes-born Rutherford, 25, became the first Briton since Lynn Davies in 1964 to win the Olympic long-jump title.
The Royal Mail will also paint one of its postboxes in Rutherford's home town of Milton Keynes to mark the victory.
It will be the 13th gold medal stamp to be issued by Royal Mail.
The stamp is due to be on sale from lunchtime.
