An historic stamp, featuring Olympic Gold Medallist Ben Ainslie is now on sale.

The Team GB Sailor raced to victory on the waves of Weymouth and Portland to become the most decorated Olympian in the event.

He's the 15th athlete to be featured on the Royal Mail gold medal stamps.

The first stamp produced showed Helen Glover and Heather Stanning's moment of triumph as they crossed the line in the Women's Pair Rowing final.
