Chris Hoy's second Olympic gold post box

A second post box has been painted gold in Edinburgh to mark Sir Chris Hoy's latest Olympic victory.

The post box in Hunter Square received the special treatment after Edinburgh-born Sir Chris won his second cycling gold of the games.

A new Sir Chris Hoy postage stamp has also been released by the Royal Mail to mark his achievement.

With six golds and one silver, Sir Chris is Britain's most successful Olympian ever.
