Hot off the press!!! Ten lucky swimmers spent a morning with Robbie Renwick and David Wilkie for the Official Royal Mail Commonwealth Games Stamp Launch.
It was an exciting event with Robbie an David chatting and signing autographs with the swimmers.
Today the official photographs have been sent to the papers and I have been sent the full set of prints from the photographer.
Well done to all the swimmers involved hopefully they will be in the newspapers over the next few days!
