As David Weir delivered his second gold medal of the paralympic games last night residents in Wallington got their own golden delivery this morning.

To mark the Paralympian gold medal efforts at the Olympic Stadium in Stratford, Royal Mail have painted a post box gold on Woodcote Road in Wallington.

Weir sealed his second gold of the games in the T54 1500m last night in dramatic fashion taking command on the final lap to storm to victory.

Just this morning, Weir, from the Roundshaw Estate, was on the track again as he cruised to victory in his 800 metre heat, the final of which is tomorrow.
