The Royal Mail has released official stamps commemorating the London 2012 Games.
This type of stamp — known as the “definitive” version — usually only features an image of the Queen. Royal Mail said it was the first time a logo had been beside the Queen’s head on a “definitive” (everyday) stamp.
Sets of “everyday” first class stamps displaying the Olympic and Paralympic logos will go on sale this week in shops around the UK. They will be available from all 11,800 Post Office branches and from thousands of retailers from 5 January.
