A GOLDEN tribute has appeared on Alcester High Street to honour the town's new Olympic hero.
Nick Skelton led Team GB to gold in the showjumping on Monday (August 6) - the first time Britain has taken top spot for 60 years.
Workers from Royal Mail swung into action early on Wednesday (August 8) to paint a postbox outside Alcester Post Office gold to mark the incredible achievement.
It will remain there for a period of time before being returned to its natural red colour. Special stamps featuring Skelton and his team-mates have also gone on sale at the town's post office.
Alcester Mayor Lennox Cumberbatch also told the Standard the town council was planning to hold a celebration event to honour Skelton's achievement.
"It's wonderful for the town but also an excellent achievement for someone who has been involved in showjumping for so many years," he said.
"We want to celebrate and do something fitting and we will be talking to Nick and his team to see what would be appropriate."
