A postbox has been painted gold following Kent's Lizzy Yarnold's win at the Winter Olympics.
Vandals struck overnight in Hever Road in West Kingsdown, near Sevenoaks - the skeleton champion's home town.
It comes after Royal Mail said it had no plans to decorate postboxes for Sochi winners - like it did for gold medallists at London 2012.
It said it will instead look into other ways of honouring Yarnold, a former Maidstone Grammar School for Girls' pupil.
This could include creating a special postmark to recognise the achievements of top athletes.
But a Twitter campaign #paintitgoldforlizzy is hoping to force the organisation into a U-turn.
