POSTING a letter in Central Milton Keynes is a golden experience now, thanks to Greg Rutherford.

After Bletchley’s Ginger Wizard leapt 8.31m to win long jump gold in the Olympic Games on Saturday night, Royal Mail wasted no time in painting two of their post boxes gold in recognition of his incredible achievement.

A commemorative stamp has also been launched to celebrate Rutherford’s golden night in London’s Olympic Stadium.

Rumours are rife too that Rutherford’s gold medal will be celebrated with a roundabout named after him.
