A postbox has been painted gold in Team GB rider Scott Brash's home town to honour his new status as a gold medallist.
The 26-year-old won gold with the equestrian jumping team, comprising Peter Charles, Ben Maher and Nick Skelton.
The quartet enjoyed an extra-time triumph against Holland at Greenwich Park.
A red postbox in Peebles, the Borders, was covered in gold paint on Tuesday morning by Royal Mail to mark his achievement.
A special gold medal stamp has also been produced by the Royal Mail celebrating the quartet's triumph.
The stamps went on sale at lunchtime on Tuesday in more than 500 post offices in the UK.
Royal Mail will be painting one of its red postboxes gold to celebrate every Team GB and Paralympics GB gold medal win.
To turn a postbox from its traditional red to gold is a process involving a primer and four coats of gold paint.
The boxes will remain in use and customers will be able to post mail in them as normal. The boxes will remain gold, with no plans to have them repainted red in the near future.
Brash only linked up with his horse Hello Sanctos just before the London 2012 deadline last December.
The horse was bought for him by long-standing British equestrian supporters Lord and Lady Harris and Lord and Lady Kirkham.
