ROYAL Mail is celebrating Andy Murrays historic win in the Gentlemen’s Singles final at Wimbledon by issuing special stamps.
The issue features different images of Murray on four stamps, all printed within a miniature sheet. Two stamps show him with the trophy and two are action shots from the final. The sheet will retail at £3.76.
Andrew Hammond, managing director of stamps and collectibles at Royal Mail, said: “We are thrilled for Andy and are delighted to mark his wonderful achievement by issuing a set of Special Stamps. His historic win at Wimbledon has made the nation proud, and we can now celebrate his success with this new stamp issue.
“Andy’s stamp joins just a handful of special stamps we have issued to mark unique moments in British sporting history, including the next day Gold Medal stamps for London 2012, England’s Ashes and football and rugby World Cup wins.”
This is the second time Murray’s achievements have been marked by a Royal Mail stamp. Royal Mail issued a Gold Medal stamp to mark his win in the Tennis Men’s Singles at the London 2012 Olympic Games last summer.
Fred Perry was the last Briton to win the Gentlemen’s Singles title, in 1936.
The stamps can be pre-ordered online at www.royalmail.com/tennis and by phone on 08457 641 641. They will be available in over 10,000 Post Office Branches across the UK from August 8.
