Bronze postbox appears in Lowestoft to mark the achievements of Olympic bronze medallist Anthony Ogogo

As Olympic fever continues to sweep across the nation, the achievements of every Team GB and Paralympics GB athlete has seen the Royal Mail paint some of its iconic and much-loved red postboxes gold in celebration of every gold medal won during the London 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games.

But in Lowestoft, close to the home of the town's bronze-medal winning Olympian Anthony Ogogo, an unofficial bronze postbox has appeared.

The postbox, on Kirkley Cliff, opposite Regent Road, has been painted in bronze to honour his achievements and says 'Congratulations Ogogo! Olympic bronze medalist' (sic).

Mystery surrounds those responsible for honouring the town's first-ever Olympic bronze medallist, with the postbox having been daubed in bronze paint in the past couple of days.

But it has appeared close to the home of the Triple A boxing club and GB international fighter in recognition of his fantastic achievements at the London 2012 Games.
