Paralympic gold medallist Sarah Storey will be honoured by the Royal Mail with her own stamp following her efforts in the women's track cycling C5 individual pursuit.

British cyclist Sarah Storey's Paralympic gold-medal victory will be commemorated by the Royal Mail by introducing her very own stamp.

The 34-year-old, who now has eight Paralympic gold medals to her name, clinched Great Britain's first top honour in the women's track cycling C5 individual pursuit yesterday.

The first set of stamps will be able to be purchased in Storey's hometown of Disley in Cheshire as she becomes the first Paralympian ever to be honoured by the Royal Mail.

Meanwhile, Britain's gold medallist swimmer Jonathan Fox is also due to be celebrated with a stamp.
