Mo Farah’s SECOND (5000m) Gold postbox is in Teddington, opposite Sweatshop, where he used to work.
Coincidentally it’s also opposite the Fara charity shop!
Tweet him here https://twitter.com/Mo_Farah if you think he now needs to get over to Bushy Park this Saturday and break the 5k parkrun record of 13:48 (13:41 was Farah’s time in a ‘slow’ race at the Olympics) which he would ‘easily’ be able to do with only a week’s recovery.
That would complete the golden threesome nicely.
FYI: Apparently the first postbox for his 10,000m was in Isleworth

FYI: The postboxes only stay for one month…which I think is a real shame. The Post Office have done a good bit of PR by creating them (and the stamps) but painting them red again is a shame. Tweet @royalmailnews if you think they should make them permanent.
