Well I have to say I am impressed by the Royal Mail not only producing Gold medal winners stamps but painting 1 post box gold in the winners home town. What an excellent idea and I never thought I would say any such thing about Royal Mail.

I truly wish I could say: "I KNEW it
was going to happen!", but I can't....

Very happy the Haggis Eater came
out on top, however....

I'd say he's paid for his win, though,
wouldn't you?

A really earned and deserved victory :ymapplause:

Up Next: Mixed Doubles!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sad to say that they probably employed a CONSULTANT at VAST EXPENSE to come up with that idea! ~x(

PRICELESS!
