Golden postbox standing proud in Maidenhead for Paralympic hero

This is Maidenhead's new golden postbox - painted to celebrate the Paralympic success of equestrian Sophie Christiansen.

The High Street postbox was transformed by the Royal Mail on Friday after the 24-year-old, who lives in Boyn Hill Road, Maidenhead, won the London 2012 team open event - one of three gold medals she picked up at the Games with her horse Janeiro.

The box is situated near Santander and Greggs, at the Queen Street end of the High Street.

First class stamps featuring Sophie and her team were also put on sale in more than 5,000 post offices across the UK.
