Olympic stamps to honour Island athletes

Mon, 08 Aug 2016

The Isle of Man Post Office has become the only Great British postal administration to issue a set of Team GB stamps in celebration of the Olympic Games.

It says it's 'only fitting' to produce a new set of stamps in recognition of the Island's involvement in the games.

The sporting event got underway in Rio de Janeiro on Friday evening - more than 100,000 people, including 10,500 athletes will be taking part; including three with Manx connections.

Cyclists Mark Cavendish and Ian Stannard and shooter Tim Kneale will represent TeamGB.
