Here's a first sneak peak at Paralympic gold medalist Mark Colbourne's commemorative stamp.

The Tredegar cyclist claimed gold in the 3km pursuit final, breaking the World Record he set in qualifying, as he beat China's Zhang Yu Li at the Velodrome in London.

In addition to the stamp, Colbourne will also be honoured with a gold post box in Tredegar.

Painting will begin on Commercial Street at 1pm.

Well done Mark, the whole of Tredegar and Wales are very proud of what you have achieved since your horrific accident. You are a true inspiration to thousands of people who are striving to overcome their disabilities.
All the hours of pain, suffering and training in all winds and weathers have paid off and you fully deserve your just rewards.
