A Gold Post Box For Dunblane
It was over 100 years ago a member of Team GB won a singles gold in tennis at the London 2012 Olympics.
Just 45 minutes after winning the singles gold, out-playing Federer most of the match, Andy Murray returned to Centre Court for the mixed doubles final with Laura Robson. They were narrowly beaten by the top seeds from Belarus.
It was a silver medal gained rather than a gold medal lost for the scratch pairing with such limited experience of playing together.
What a day it was for him.
Before 8am this morning Owen Smith from the Royal Mail's engineering department was seen painting a post box in Dunblane's High Street. Perfect!
