Gymnastics sensation Max Whitlock became one of the first Team GB athletes to be presented with a stunning all-gold 100% electric Nissan Leaf following his medal triumph at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
The Nissan ambassador made headlines around the world when he took two gold medals – securing gold on the floor and pommel horse – on what has been dubbed 'Sensational Sunday'.
In recognition of his astonishing achievement, Nissan will now present him with the keys to a Leaf wrapped in brilliant bright gold – on his return to the UK.
Nissan Team GB and ParalympicsGB athletes returning from Rio with a gold medal will be presented with a gold Leaf, making it one of the most limited edition Nissan models ever.
Nissan is the official automotive partner of Team GB and ParalympicsGB and has been delighted by the success of its other competing ambassador athletes so far, including first gold Leaf winner – rower George Nash, for his win in the men's coxless-four.

'We are all so proud to have him associated with Nissan and he's the perfect person to be a recipient of one of our gold Leafs.'
