They're actually quite good and I like it that they try to use action photos rather than 'Look here's my medal' pictures. A range of these stamps would give a good flavour of all the sporting activities. So well done RM!

Men's team sprint.

They always intended to do action shots - this enables them to say it's a 'first' (because Athens and Sydney did 'medal' shots).

A video of the men's canoe slalom stamps (Baillie-Stott). Most of it's known already, I think.

Been a busy few days, huh?

Spare a thought for the designers and printers!

We have the men's team pursuit:

And Victorian Pendleton's keirin:

(The keirin is the one where they follow the bloke on the moped. As someone in my Twitter timeline put it 'Come on the man from the GPO!' He really does look like an old fashioned motorcycle postie...)

And there are TWO MORE rowing gold medal stamps coming: the men's four and the women's double sculls.

Copeland, in the latter, apparently said: 'We've won the Olympics! We're going to be on a stamp tomorrow!'
