Post Offices have already had to take extra deliveries of designs featuring Restronguet sailor Ben Ainslie and Penzance rower Helen Glover.

Carole Trelease from Truro post office tells the Westcountry Tonight there has been a rush. She said: "We had a huge queue, great fun yesterday, asolutely brilliant. We had an extra delivery on Saturday, and we've already had an extra delivery of Ben Ainslie."

Cornwall's Olympic champion Ben Ainslie has admitted he is not sure where all four of his gold medals are.

The Restronguet sailor says his parents are looking after them, but he does not know where because they are so security conscious.
