The gold post box commemorating ’s Olympic medal win has been fixed, after a car knocked it down.

On Monday, a silver rolled down the hill into the post box – reports suggested the car just missed teenagers sitting nearby.

The box had been surrounded by traffic cones and tape overnight before work began on Tuesday morning.

The Dunblane post box was painted gold after the Olympic champion’s singles win over in 2012.

The star’s mother tweeted a picture of the reinstated post box, captioned: “Arise Sir Andy’s postbox” with a hearth emoji.

Police Scotland confirmed they attended the “low-speed collision” on the town’s High Street.

A spokeswoman confirmed the female driver of the car had suffered a minor injury but did not need medical treatment.

It was unclear whether the woman was in the car at the time.
