The Isle of Man Post Office has issued a set of stamps for Team GB ahead of this summer’s Olympic Games.

The set of four stamps, issued on 23 May and each with a value of £1.27, depict four Team GB cyclists, the silhouettes of runners, a gymnast preparing to perform, and a swimmer in action. The stamps were printed by BDT using offset lithography.

Samuel Day, Licensing & Retail Manager of British Olympic Association said:

‘Postage stamps offer an iconic and unique opportunity to mark memorable moments in time and there’s no better sporting stage to do so than Team GB’s participation at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. We are hugely proud to do just that with this officially licensed stamp offering from the Isle of Man Post Office.’

Maxine Cannon, IOM Stamps & Coins General Manager said:

‘With the Island’s strong connections to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games the post office saw it only fitting that we produce a set of stamps in recognition of our participation in this wonderful sporting event. On behalf of the Isle of Man Post Office I would like to send our very best wishes to the Team GB athletes who will be heading to Brazil for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.’
