Wonderful, wonderful video here of Hoskings and Copeland (particularly Copeland, who's brilliant) discussing stamps with SIR STEVE REDGRAVE, who mentions them first.

Don't forget, 518 POs are open Sundays for them, and we have a list by postcode or by town of which POs are stocking the gold medal stamps.

Opening times for Sundays are on the Post Office Branch Finder (pick 'Gold medal next day stamps).

I'll be popping down to Croydon later.

Queue of six at Croydon (one of whom wanted passport photos!), saw the stamps arrive in their special envelopes at 9.34am, had fun chatting to collectors in the crowd.
