Andy Murray’s commemorative gold post box has been knocked down by a car in Dunblane.
The 32-year-old beat Roger Federer to win gold at Wimbledon at the London 2012 games and had a postbox painted gold in his honour.
Pictures on social media showed the vehicle beside the postbox lying on the ground in the tennis star’s hometown.
A Police Scotland spokesman said: “Police in Forth Valley attended at Dunblane High Street at around 7.50pm on Monday July 22 following a report of a low-speed collision where a Mercedes car struck a Royal Mail postbox.
“The female driver of the car sustained a minor injury but didn’t require medical attention.
“Inquiries into this incident are ongoing.”
A Royal Mail spokeswoman added: “We’re aware that the Andy Murray gold postbox has been knocked down and will look to reinstate it as soon as possible.”
